Witch-Hunts, Heresy & Human Rights


"Radio is public and powerful. Excluding women from radio
excludes them from public power...
There's a radio format waiting to be invented,
one that would give women a bigger voice and tap into a bigger market."
-Mary Schmich Chicago Tribune

About the show The Feminist Lens: A new radio magazine show
The Feminist Lens is a Women's Media Group radio program in a magazine format
that looks at the fine arts from a feminist perspective. Commentator Marilyn Campbell,
with Maya Friedler and Jamie O'Reilly of Women's Media Group, engages in conversation
with formidable authors, musicians, film critics, and scholars, using the feminist lens to focus on a theme. Musical pieces, spoken word, and archival material are presented with commentary.

Listeners hear from activists and archivists: such as Second-Wave Feminists
who were trailblazers in grassroots efforts for equality, and we hear from activists now.
The program explores current events, on a local and global scale, and comments on
women's issues "then" and now. Original musical composition and personal essays
are regular features of the program.
