Interested in learning more about Our Bodies Ourselves and the beginning of a worldwide movement for women’s health? Judy Norsigian, OBOS co-founder and executive director, is going to be on WBAI radio (99.5 FM in New York) this Thursday (Nov. 5) from 10 to 11a.m. EST. You can stream the interview at www.wbai.org.
Norsigian’s appearance is part of a special two-hour edition of the Joy of Resistance, WBAI’s multicultural feminist radio show. Expect her to weigh in on health care reform, the state of maternity care and many other urgent issues.
Joy of Resistance will offer copies of “Our Bodies, Ourselves” signed by Norsigian as a fundraiser premium, along with two award-winning documentary DVD’s: “Absolutely Safe” by Carol Leyva, which examines the safety of breast implants, and “Killing Us Softly: Advertising’s Image of Women-3” by Jean Kilbourne, a look at the pressures on today’s women to conform to commercial standards of beauty.
WBAI is part of the Pacifica Radio Network, which includes five radio stations (the other four are in Berkeley, Los Angeles, Houston, and Washington, D.C.) and more than 50 affiliate stations.
