44 plays

morningamp:

A malpractice suit was filed by a mother in New York. She said that doctors threatened her and that she had a C section against her will. She was asking doctors to give her another hour, and they commanded her to not speak. During the C section procedure, she suffered further physical damage. The Council of Feminist Thought discussed whether or not the doctor has a right to perform surgical procedures on women despite their wishes to give a natural birth and at what point does the doctor have the right to intervene? Take a listen.

Why Do We Criminalize Pregnant Women?

morningamp:

I think that the root of this [criminalizing pregnant women] is tied back to the pro-life movement and trying to give fertilized eggs, embryos, fetuses, certain ‘inalienable rights’ which by their very existence alienate the mother, and put the mother at risk of harm and prosecution.”
- Cassandra Gaddo from the Council of Feminist Thought

Mixing it up on the Council are Cassandra Gaddo from Step Up Women’s Network and comedian Liza Treyger. One #FemWed topic that was discussed was the criminalization of pregnant women for drug use. Along with AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams, they analyzed points on whether or not the root for this falls from the abortion controversy and what protective rights women may or may not have have in certain pro-life states.

Ladies: Are you a Boss? Bossy? Or Both?

morningamp:

"I’m not bossy, I’m a boss," says Beyoncé in a new campaign from LeanIn.org encouraging parents and educators to drop the word “bossy” when describing headstrong girls. But the AMp’s Council of Feminist Thought has convened to wonder if “bossy” is all that bad and what kind of effect banning a word can have.

Even though this campaign may have been well-intended, it does not cover the REAL issues facing young women, particularly young women of color as discussed by the Council: According to the African American Policy Forum, black girls are suspended at a higher rate than all other girls and white and Latino boys. Sixty-seven percent of black girls reported feelings of sadness or hopelessness for more than two weeks straight compared to 31 percent of white girls and 40 percent of Latinas. Single black women have the lowest net wealth of any group, with research showing a median wealth of $100.

Real Talk: BBC to Ban All Male "Sexist" Panel Shows

morningamp:

This week, BBC executives have enforced producers to include women in their panel for their all-male comedy shows. This move was to aknowledge the overall gender imbalance and attempt to fix these criticisms by bringing in female comedians. The AMp’s Molly Adams was joined by WBEZ Midday Producer Justin Kaufman and Dr. Coya Paz to talk about the lack of diversity in comedy and both the obvious and underlying reasons for BBC’s move.
