Girl Power!

Listen to the podcast

Sam was our host on today’s Adamant Eve and she brought us an update on the court case brought forth by women ski jumpers wanting to take part in the 2010 Olympics.

In the news, Malaika talked about a recent study that found college students, both victims and perpetrators, reported increased incidents of sexual assault when the questions did not explicitly define the behaviour as assault.

Laura C. talked to Jessalynn Keller, a freelance journalist and PhD student in Film and Media Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. Laura read a piece Jessalynn wrote for TheTyee.ca called “Sorry, Can’t Do Raunch Today” on our August live show and was thrilled when Jessalynn agreed to an interview. They talked about real power for girls, Twilight and teen magazines.

We also mentioned two events: the screenings of Polytechnique at the Metro this weekend, and the Love Letters to Feminism exhibit at the U of A. Follow the links for more info!

Women’s Ski Jumping Update

On November 13th, we gave an update and recap on the lawsuit filed by a group of female ski jumpers for their exclusion from the 2010 Olympic Games (listen to the podcast if you missed it!). Unfortunately their appeal has been rejected. If this leaves you less than satisfied, you can add your name to the petition.

Solicitation Laws on Adamant Eve

Listen tonight at 5:30 for an all new Adamant Eve! Tune in to CJSR 88.5 FM or listen online at www.cjsr.com.

This week on Adamant Eve, Ashley interviews Stephanie Laskoski. In 2007, Laskoski received the Roger S. Smith Undergraduate Student Researcher Award and decided to use the award to create a documentary and  research project on prostitution and the laws surrounding soliciting.

Laura Collison brings us the news this week with a story about a new law in Quebec, Bill 34, which will potentially limit access to abortion in the province. The bill has been met with a lot of resistance from the public and the medical community and now the government is rethinking it.

Bringing the show to a close is Sam with Radio Eve. This week she brings us the song African Pride by Souljah Fyah.
