WOMEN

An activist mom, her activist son and a celebration for a passionate young man. 

Forest activists, community members, musicians and artists will gather at the Historic Eagle House in Old Town, Eureka on Sunday, September 16 for a 20th Anniversary Memorial for David “Gypsy” Chain.  The event is a fundraiser for a scholarship in memory of the young man who lost his life while trying to prevent illegal logging near Grizzly Creek in the Van Duzen River watershed. 


Like many of us, Cassandra Hesseltine was bewitched as a child by the magic she saw on the silver screen. Like fewer of us, Hesseltine has been spending her adult years working numerous jobs within the film industry. She currently heads the nonprofit Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission, serving as a sherpa and concierge to producers and directors who need a little North Coast magic to tell their stories.

In this Through The Eyes of Women episode, Hesseltine talks about the realities of her fantastical job, and what a film commission does for a community.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend in 2016, a few weeks after Trump was elected president, Krista Suh was pondering how she could register her discontent and make an impact at the Women’s March scheduled for January, 2017.  In a flash of inspiration, Krista launched the Pussyhat Project to knit pink cat-eared hats to wear at the Women’s March in Washington D.C.  The project went viral and thousands of hats were knitted and worn at demonstrations around the world.

Chronologically Gifted: Summary on Aging While Female

Mar 30, 2017

Co-hosts Ann Diver-Stamnes and Pam Brown talk about what they learned from their four guests who shared their perceptions on how the aging process is different for women than it is for men.  They advocated for changing the current perceptions about women and aging:.  "..we must do so in unity across ages by learning to recognize ageism and pointing it out whenever we confront it,  and by shifting our own internal lenses so that we see the beauty inherent in having been given the gift of years of life."

Stephanie Coontz teaches history and family studies at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and is the author of multiple books including The Way We Never Were:  American Families and the Nostalgia Trap.  She provides a historical perspective on women and aging in Western culture.  As she notes, "Women carry a double burden of ageism."

Attorney and author Elizabeth Schwartz joins Emma Breacain to talk about the mysteries and surprises of marriage.

Elizabeth Schwartz is not calling for less attention to the perfect caterer and wedding band, but she is definitely calling for more consideration for our financial, legal, physical and emotional well being in her book “Before I Do: A Legal Guide to Marriage, Gay and Otherwise.”

In this episode, Schwartz illuminates the possible pitfalls and surprises of the institution, recommends knowledge as power, and discusses her own marriage.

Christina Jioras talks with Danielle Orr about the effects of having a negative body image and the effects it causes throughout life. Broadway Cinema in Eureka will be showing the movie Embrace on Monday.

"A funny, touching, at times gut wrenching but above all, life changing documentary, the heart of Embrace is Taryn Brumfitt's story. How she went from a body hater to a body lover. From being devastated by her perceived ugliness to proudly posing nude for the whole world to see."
