Decolonizing Women's History and Creating Alternative Platforms for Feminist Analysis
We hear two features from Feminist Current.

First we hear Decolonizing Women's History - An Interview with Max Dashu - Does Women's history matter? Max Dashu has dedicated her life's work to recovering the truth about women's and Indigenous histories, truths that have been omitted and erased from history books and misrepresented by the men whowrote those books. Meghan Murphy speaks wioth Max Dashu, an artist, educator, and the founder of the Suppressed Histories Archives, about the importance of women's history.

In part 2 we hear a Panel called "Creating Alternative Platforms for Feminist Analysis featuring Meghan Murphy, Lierre Keith and Vancouver Rape Relief collective member Hilla Kerner discussing ways they continue to find and create platforms for feminist discourse and to speak out against male violence against women. They also address the kind of no-plat-forming and silencing of feminists that has become common in recent years.
