This time we’re joined by Laura Jackson, an actor and feminist playwright.

We’re joined by Jen Perry, one of the main organisers of the Cruelty Free Festival WA, for this entire episode. We discuss this festival and how it puts into practice our support for intersectionality – bringing together a wide range of human rights, environmental and animal rights causes. We also discuss the recent protests against shark culling and linking opposition to the shark cull to a broader animal rights philosophy, The Sistah Vegan Project, avoiding gender stereotypes when discussing attitudes towards animals (Jen is no “cow hugger”!), critiques of term ‘cruelty-free’, and why all progressives should go to Berlin and the ICAS Oceania conference. To find out more about the Cruelty Free Festival, you can read an interview with Jen about the festival on Viva la Vegan! and you can also hear Nick discuss the festival on Team Earthling.

You can listen to this episode or download an MP3 file for it on Archive.org here (25MB).

This episode covers the One Billion Rising event, which encourages people to: ‘STRIKE, DANCE, RISE in your community & Demand an end to violence’. To help us discuss this, we are joined by feminist activist Elena Trethowan, who is helping to organise One Billion Rising events. For an event near you, see here and for those in Australia, you can also view the One Billion Rising Australia Facebook page. Before we get onto this event, we discuss some other feminist-related issues, including a feminist-themed ‘What you HAVEN’T learnt from the media this week’, how men also suffer from gender roles, “nice” guys, comedian Jamie Kilstein’s opposition to rape culture in stand-up comedy (see from 1.44.10 onwards of this video) and the tables turning on “slut shamers”.

Other topics beyond feminism that we cover are: Ruth DeSouza’s account of her first Invasion Day, Australian opposition leader Tony Abbott “cashing in” on natural disasters, Chief Theresa Spence from the Idle No More movement ends her hunger strike, John Pilger’s videos, the website Our Vegan Pregnancy, Avenue magazine, and being concerned about ALL forms of oppression rather than being “single-issue”.
