This week on our one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art Feminist Answering Machine, the fantastic author, speaker and activist Jaclyn Friedman calls in with an important message about popular storytelling. For generations, girls have learned to identify with the heroic men in books, films, and other media, but, as Jaclyn so aptly puts it, boys are taught to act as if media featuring awesome girls “has cooties.” If we change this, we can change the world. Listen to Jaclyn’s message now, and also check out her brand new book, Unscrewed: Women, Sex, Power, and How to Stop Letting the System Screw Us All.
