Your Call: Confronting a popular culture hostile to women (especially fat, funny women)

Feb 17, 2016

  On the February 18th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with writer Lindy West about feminism and pop culture. 

You might know West from her story on This American Life where she confronts one of her most persistent online trolls. West will join us to discuss "coming of age in a popular culture that is hostile to women (especially fat, funny women) and how keeping quiet is not an option for any of us.” 

Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest:

Lindy West, Seattle-based writer, editor, and performer whose work focuses on pop culture, social justice, humor, and body image
