Dare to Use the F-Word tells the stories of
today's feminists through the art, the ideas, the community, and
the activism that define them. These monthly podcasts, co-produced
by the Barnard Center for Research on Women and Barnard College
Communications, will bring you interviews, conversations, and
voices making change to create a more just world. And there's no
better place to do this than at Barnard. For nearly 125 years,
this College, in the vibrant City of New York, with the first
center for research on women in the US, has been a hub of young
feminist activity - a place where theory and practice, scholarship
and action, converge. We dare to use the F-Word. We hope you'll
join us.
