The work of another great radical feminist thinker/activist, Shulamith Firestone, is experiencing a huge revival of interest since her death in August. Her 1970 feminist classic The Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution, long out of print, is now so much in demand, that new copies are selling in the $500.00 to $700.00 range--and most booksellers are completely out of stock, even of used copies. But Joy of Resistance/WBAI has managed to find some used copies in good condition and will be offering a limited number of these to listeners who contribute to the station during our fund drive show.
We will also be offering a limited number of DVD's of the groundbreaking theater-piece The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler.
And of course we'll be bringing you our usual up-to-the-minute feminist analyses of current events.
