In this episode we talk to Dr. Emma Vossen, award winning public speaker and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at York University with a PhD from the University of Waterloo. Her research looks at the myriad of different ways marginalized people have difficulty accessing gameplay and games culture both historically and in the present. She is the co-author and co-editor of the anthology Feminism in Play.
In this episode Liz sits down with guest co-host, Amy Drayer to talk about WTF is going on in politics today, the state of women in the world, and how we can resist the patriarchy.
Men who claim to be feminists and then turn out to be (alleged) abusers of women (like James Deen or, most recently Eric Schneiderman) repeatedly focus the public’s attention on male feminism: is it possible, what does it mean and what place should men have in the feminist movement?
Today we discuss what it takes to be a male feminist, how to differentiate between faux feminism and actual feminism in a conversation with “not purely male, fluid inbetween” feminist photographer and artist Michael Würmer.
