Nick is joined by Kathryn Joy for this entire episode. The first half of the episode is a critical look at the feminist campaign calling for American singer Chris Brown to be denied entry into Australia because of his conviction for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rhianna. We draw on Nick’s article ‘Don’t judge me: Chris Brown and the real task of tackling violence against women’, Clem Bastow’s article ‘The Problem with the Ban Against Chris Brown’ and Katie Robertson’s article ‘Violence Against Women In Australia, Bad; Violence Against Women In The Care Of Australia, Acceptable’ (content warning for discussion of sexual violence).

GetUp

We also discuss GetUp! cancelling their campaign against Brown and apologising due to the racist narrative it perpetuated, Maori support for Brown, his (court ordered) involvement with domestic violence intervention services, misogynist lyrics in Brown’s music, his ongoing problematic behaviour that suggests he may not have changed, as well as a more general discussion on whether the feminist movement should ever support restrictions on immigration – not just for Brown but in general (such as against sexist pick up artist Julien Blanc).

In the second half of the episode we discuss some critiques of identity politics, which emphasises the importance of personal experience. We draw on Michael Brull’s article ‘The Debate we have to have: Identity Politics and the Left’ and discuss how identity politics fits with a range of other issues, including intersectionality, same-sex marriage and sex work.

This time we take on the lack of funding for services to tackle domestic violence in the federal budget. We’re joined by Jessica Ellen, a law student who has done research into domestic violence and volunteered at community legal centres.

We start by playing Waleed Aly’s #ShowMeTheMoney video on this issue, as well as Jessica’s follow-up video on this.

Jessica then discusses the importance of domestic violence services and education for men, government cuts and how this relates to domestic violence, the role of the law in addressing these issues, Waleed Aly’s interview with Malcolm Turnbull, gendered violence and why anger management alone doesn’t address it, and Jane Gilmore’s article ‘What the Coroner’s Court report reveals about domestic violence’.

Also covered on the episode is: 1800 Respect, non-profits and neoliberalism, religion and progressive values (check out episodes 87 and 88 for more on this), and we promote Indymedia on RTR92.1FM – 27 April episode features an interview with film-maker David Bradbury on his documentary ‘Remembering the Frontier Wars’ as well as a discussion about Anzac Day, 4 May episode covered the Melbourne protests against the closure of Indigenous communities.
