    Episode 11: The Feminist and the Sex Offender

    Episode 11: The Feminist and the Sex Offender

    Judith Levine is a guest in this episode as Madeline and Sharon talk to her about her fascinating book, The Feminist and the Sex Offender, Confronting Sexual Harm, Ending State Violence co-authored by Erica Meiners, and published by Verso Press.
    Judith Levine is the author of several other books including Harmful to Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children from Sex which was published in 2002. We discuss “carceral” vs “abolitionist” feminists and work through our curiosities and differences around sex offending. We ask who counts as a sex offender, and what counts as a sex offense.  We debate punishment vs. restorative justice and apply this to research on recidivism. We also ask provocatively why, why as a feminist has she chosen to defend sex offenders when violence against women is still rampant? Savvy, funny, and oh so smart, you’ll want to hear Judith describe her book and brilliantly address our questions and concerns!

    Episode 9: Madeline and Sharon attack the new Title IX guidelines

    Episode 9: Madeline and Sharon attack the new Title IX guidelines

    In this podcast, Madeline and Sharon go over all the changes to Title IX guidelines proposed by Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. As they fearlessly and with little expertise think through the legal and financial motivators for the new guidelines, they remain staunch supporters of victims/survivors for which they do have some expertise. These changes are a bummer, but they try to end on a positive note discussing what campuses can do to still support victims who come forward.

    Episode 8: #BelieveTaraReade

    In this episode Sharon and Madeline  express their dismay over liberals’ response to Tara Reade’s accusation against former Vice President Joe Biden. Asserting their “expert” status on victims and sexual violence, they discuss why they believe her allegations and fume over the hypocrisy of those who supported Christine Blasey-Ford who now are doubting a different victim when it is inconvenient to believe her.

    Episode 7: My Type of Victim

    Episode 7: My Type of Victim

    Sharon and Madeline respond to the recent rape story in the news described by E. Jean Carroll, about her encounter with President Trump in a department store dressing room, over 20 years ago. This leads them to consider the burden we place on victims to be the right kind of victim or to inhabit a victim persona. They respond to some of the attacks on Ms. Carroll and reinforce the idea of the #metoo movement, that these experiences are commonplace, but also that responses to these kinds of experiences vary among victims.
