Our show on January 23, 2018, 12:00–1:00 PM EST, will be the fourth in a month-long series on “2018 and the Fight for the Future.” This show will look at the messages of the 2nd Annual Women’s March held this past weekend. Entitled “#PowerToThePolls”, this year’s Women’s March, held on Saturday, January 20th, in more than 88 cities and towns again drew record crowds from throughout the nation of nearly 2 million with 300,000 people marching in Chicago alone! Again, there were allied international marches sponsored across the world! Three unique features of this year’s March were the hundreds of women who participated as candidates running for office; the major convergence with the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements; and the major rally held on Sunday, January 21st in Las Vegas, Nevada. Yet, the national media significantly underplayed and poorly covered this historic and momentous event. Our show will explore this phenomenon of the women’s March while attempting to decipher what this means for our viewers, African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans and Native Americans.
Our featured guests are Kim Crenshaw, renowned law professor, creator of concept of Intersectionality, and co-director of the African American Policy Forum; Terry O’Neill, prominent civil rights attorney, executive director of the National Employment lawyers Association and board member of the Washington Women’s March; and Luke Harris, Professor at Vassar College, and co-director of the African-American Policy Forum. Associate Producer Justin Arnwine will also join the show. See guest bios and pictures at www.BarbaraArnwine.com.
During the show, we will examine: How did this Second Women’s March differ from the original March?; What has the Women’s March accomplished over the last year?; Will White Women reverse their pattern of voting for White men, patriarchy and white supremacy?; Are White women ready for an intersectional framework which centers Black women? Will marchers follow through at the polls in 2018?; How will the organizers reach their goal of 1 Million new registered voters?; Can more women be elected to office? What did the short governmental shutdown mean for women’s policy objectives?; and Why the horrible media coverage of the March? These and more questions will be discussed during the show.
