A program of social and political commentary from a socialist-feminist point of view.


Bill Resnick speaks with Paula Rabinowitz, who just competed a 4 volume series on clothes and accessories, how people use them to create identities, identify selves, resist subordination, and generally communicate. They examine the 20th century, beginning with the use of hats and purses to signal and fight for the liberated (somewhat) woman. They conclude with today’s masquerade, way beyond accessories for the middle class, as people experiment with materials to construct themselves, and what that could come to mean when strong commitments and clear political choices become necessary when both a left and fascists forces contest for power. 
Movie Moles Jan Haaken and Denise Morris will review "Free Angela Davis and All Political Prisoners"
And Joe Clement reads from the Occupy Wall Street statement declaring their one demand to be to end capitalism.
