  4. Good luck, Heart! I hope it goes well! I’ll listen, but I don’t know if I can listen live…might have to catch it in the archives.
    I’m so excited about this. Your “Confronting the Religious Right” article is excellent and so powerful.

  7. Kickass! I wish you’d had time to tell more of your story, but you were great. 🙂

  8. HAH!!

    Thanks all you wimmin! We got quite a bit in, for such a short period of time. 🙂

    I thought it went well, too. Wish I’d have given the name of my own website correctly, however– I said http://www.womensspace.COM instead of womensspace.ORG. I can’t believe I did that!

  9. Oh, no, I didn’t even catch that!

  10. Well, it will be fine. If they go to Womensspace.COM, they’ll realize that’s wrong, so hopefully they will do a search and will end up the right place. 🙂

  11. I did catch that minor glitch, but I doubt anyone who is looking for you will let that stop them. Other than that, I also think it went very well.

  12. Oh good, Aletha! I was just going to e-mail you and ask you what you thought.

    Well, I will e-mail you now. 🙂

  13. At first I thought the one, sorry but I did not know which was which was going to be a little crabby because at the beginning of their show they had a little minor tiff. I think the one said something on the air that the other did not appreciate. Then it smoothed out some once the speaker about the Guatemalan women started talking. Very sad story indeed.

    By the time Heart came on they seemed to be in better spirits, so I was relieved. Especially since I think it was the woman who is studying the Right who was a little miffed earlier.

    I think the message about women not having a place to meet, to talk, to get support outside of church and other venues designed to make money is a very powerful observation. And needs attention, from the one one one to larger groups.

  14. Huh, that’s interesting, cm. I didn’t hear the earlier portion of the broadcast, and I wondered about the quietness of the woman who is studying the Religious Right.

    As to women connecting one to one, outside of church, without government help, grass roots, yes. I think that’s where our answers are.

  15. “I wondered about the quietness of the woman who is studying the Religious Right.”

    I think they were quiet because they were listening. They were hearing a good and powerful voice. And it shows respect. I hate the radio and t.v. announcers who talk over their guest, especially to such an extent that the message of the guest is not quite heard. Meida Matters highlight such dolts all the time and typically they are male.

  16. Way to go Heart! I listened this morning due to the time difference.

    I think you packed in as much as a person could given the time constraints. I would have appreciated hearing more and I hope that you have a chance to be heard again on a variety of topics.

    As usual, women’s lives and conditions revolve around males who design environments that control and otherwise harm those of us born female. Your speaking out about this is one voice that even if the words reached one woman, is a goddess-send to her and may result in one woman having a better path.

    As always you provide much to think about. I do find strength in knowing you.

    Rock on!

  17. Way to go! (I managed to stay up). You sounded great and got in quite a bit in the small amount of time you had – enough to give women who don’t know you an idea of what you are about.

    Yes, women turning to the religious right in order to get what they and their children need is a big problem. Feminists have given some needed services in the form of DV shelters, but much more is needed and a shelter not constrained by patriarchal rules/regs is virtually nonexistent. We used to have feminist bookstores but they have mostly closed, feminist health centers have closed, feminist restaurants 😦 To give these services (and more), have physical places to go, to that extent a women’s *society* exists. When the services/places shut down, the women’s society ceases to exist. So women go to the men’s society, in this case the rr. Money is needed to fund services/places, of which the rr has vastly more than feminists. So somehow feminists will have to get out from under the need for money. This sounds, but may not be, impossible, as in Sonia Johnson/Genevieve Vaughn’s gift society.

    Anyway, great interview! 🙂

  18. So damn good to hear this, Heart! So much incredibly wonderful information in such a short amount of time. You absolutely rocked in this interview. So much compassion for women in what you said… and in how you said it. *sigh* So much compassion… shedding light on the need for radical feminist women to have compassion for women they might not otherwise think to have compassion for. YKWIM? Jumper wearing women with lots ‘o kids? Not the usual “compassion magnets” that many radical feminist women think of when doling out the hugs and help.

    You’ve been on our side… walked in our shoes… and that’s not something that someone can fake. Anyone listening could hear the experience in your voice. You know. You just know. And your voice… the voice of kindness towards women. ALL women!

    Love ya Heart! Thank you for doing this interview and for making our world of pain and our experiences from hell known and felt.

  19. Hey, Uppity, LearningOne and Branjor, thanks!

    How are you, LearningOne? I think about you, wonder how you are doing. What you’ve said here means a lot to me, so thanks again.

    Branjor, so true. We need to recreate women’s spaces, which will be twice as hard now as it was 30 years ago because of the opposition to woman-only space that exists now, but it *is* what we need, beginning with each of us and any woman or girl she knows. Those connections can be so powerful and especially now where, like you say, most of the women’s spaces from the 70s, 80s have gone by the wayside and a lot of the DV shelters are hogtied because they take funding from churches or government organizations or both.

    Along these same lines, I rode the ferry a couple weeks ago and was looking forward to stopping in at “Bad Girls,” the women’s espresso shop I blogged about before. It’s not there anymore. 😦 It’s “City Cups,” or something like that now, just a random, boring espresso place, women are gone, women’s culture, women’s artifacts are gone. 😦

  20. BETTY, I just found you. Recieved a flyer about you speeking.

    I am from the “olden times” Nancy Wells and the Unitarian Church on the hill.

    I will track you down and listen. Somehow we lost touch !!
    Hope to see you again soon. I want to know what you are doing…..and when

  21. I just tried to follow this link and their archives don’t go back to April 4 ~ is there a way to listen to the program still?
