Episode 11:  Examining Privilege

Gendercast Episode 11:  Examining Privilege

Dialogue and discussion of privilege in regards to race, class, ability and gender.  Join us in a sometimes difficult conversation around white privilege [and the importance of owning our own] as we discuss bell hooks' poignant writing on white supremacy, women of color feminism and the importance of an anti-racist agenda as a fundamental foundation to any movement of social justice.  We also discuss this as it relates to the trans/gnc movement, cisgender privelege and binary supremacy.
