Invitation to Recorded Teleconference Interview about Transphobia

Dear friends,

I would be very interested in doing a recorded teleconference interview for use as an unedited podcast/online radio show with any people who do not support Transphobia within the Progressive Movement and/or within the Feminist Movement. The interview will then appear on this website as a podcast for all to hear.

If there is enough interest we could also possibly do a Simultaneous Twitterchat but only if there is enough interest.

Please contact me by leaving a comment or clicking on the 'contact' link found at the top of this website or by calling (206) 337-1556, 24 hours a day and leaving a message.


Love for the people,

The experts of psychology, sociology, economics, biology, even the new feminism experts, are still engaged in the old battles, of women versus men. The new questions that need to be asked - and with them, the new structures for the new struggle - can only come from pooling our experience…

- The above quote is from Betty Friedan, from ‘The Second Stage.’ Betty Friedan was also the author of ‘The Feminine Mystique’ and the founder and first president of the National Organization for Women (NOW). Wikipedia describes Betty Friedan as:

Betty Naomi Friedan (February 4, 1921 – February 4, 2006) was an American feminist activist and writer, best known for starting the "second wave of the Women's Movement" through the writing of her book The Feminine Mystique in 1963, which attacked the 1950s notion, spread through society by advertising and strict enforcement of traditional gender roles, that women could only find fulfillment in child bearing, doing housework, and serving husbands.[1] The book's success, and the reaction from dissatisfied middle class women, led to the launching of consciousness-raising groups among women and the formation of grassroots women's groups. Friedan joined other leading feminists, such as Gloria Steinem, Shirley Chisholm, Fannie Lou Hamer, Bella Abzug, and Myrlie Evers-Williams in founding the National Women's Political Caucus
