In the recording of the call, Jennifer models what it means to be unapologetic around issues relating to women. She talks boldly about birth control, about abortions as a reproductive right, about being child-free, and about her relationship with women of color and queer women.
In the close out, I talk about my desire to talk about feminism as I thought it could be the route to talking about gender. I have more experience in talking about race (as opposed to gender) so I thought a conversation about feminism would give me an opportunity to explore what it means to be female in a sexist world structure. But, with Jennifer (like with Dr. Monique Liston from Ep30 and Dr. Dara Nix-Stephenson from Ep32), I learned that it is quite difficult to talk about gender without talking about race.
Needless to say, I learned a lot in my conversation with Jennifer about gender and race from the perspective of a white woman who aims to be critical and socially just (the embodiment of the awkward white feminist). Please click here (11/6/18) and join me in the lesson.
