Episode 97: The Pursuit of Female PLeasure

6/16/17 - Two books all about women & pleasure: from a political stance, Jill Filipovic and Amina discuss how a feminist rewrite of policy would center women's happiness, not merely struggling toward equality in a white male driven world. Then, Ann talks with writer Chris Kraus, whose work is about so much more than "I Love Dick," including an exploration of class and race on the border in the Bush years, and her forthcoming biography of writer, artist and self-proclaimed It Girl Kathy Acker.
