  • Womens Magazine – June 4, 2018
      [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="448"] courtesy Poetry Foundation[/caption] Chrystos [1] is a Native American of the Menominee nation, born in 1946 and raised in San Francisco. A political activist and speaker as well as an artist and writer, she is self educated. Her tireless momentum is directed at better understanding how issues of colonialism, genocide, class and gender affect the lives of women and Native people. Her books include Fugitive Colors, Not Vanishing, Dream On, Fire Power and In Her I Am. In 1995, Queer in Your Ear (Emily Charles & Mary Salome) interviewed Chrystos about her activism and poetry, and recorded her reading at two venues in San Francisco, Luna Sea and Old Wives’ Tales. The monthly program Queer in Your Ear was cancelled before the program could air. Chrystos’ words continue to inspire us. Women’s Magazine is very happy to bring excerpts from the readings and interview to you for the first time now, decades later. Produced by Mary Salome and Emily Charles.

  • April 2, 2018 – Mothers & Movies
    Sandy Butler [1], coauthor of IT NEVER ENDS: Mothering Middle-Aged Daughters, talks about the challenges for women in remaining close – but not too close – to their daughters as they age. Butler is the author of two previous books, Conspiracy of Silence: The Trauma of Incest; and the Lambda award-winning Cancer in Two Voices. IT NEVER ENDS was a collaboration with Nan Fink Gefen. Then Amy Adrion joins us to discuss her documentary HALF THE PICTURE [2], which screens at the San Francisco International Film Festival April 7, 9 and 16. Adrion interviews a diverse group of women filmmakers including Ava DuVernay (Selma), Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball), Jill Soloway (Transparent), Lena Dunham (Girls) and Karen Kusama (Girlfight). Women make up only 4.5% of directors of top grossing Hollywood films annually; women of color make up 0.06%; and these numbers have not changed in twenty years. And Amanda Salazar, programmer for the 2018 San Francisco International Film Festival [3], fills us in on other feminist movies and events that are part of this 61st annual festival, the longest-running film festival in the US. 40 films by women and many with strong female-driven story lines are among the 180+ films on offer between April 4 and 17.
