RadiOWS Episode 3: Women's Issues and Organizing at Occupy Wall Street by RadiOWS published on 2012/05/23 17:54:14 +0000 In our 3rd installment of RadiOWS: We begin with an Occupy Wall Street news roundup then launch into women's issues within the movement: we talk to OWS activist Christina Gonzalez who was arrested and sent to Riker's Island for 7 days for allegedly calling a district judge a "white racist pig". As we find out in her story, this wasn't entirely true. We then interview the organizers of Occupy Wall Streets first Feminist General Assembly that took place on May 17th to much fanfare; we'll hear a bit of the action from Washington Square NYC. Then we interview Occupy LA activist Sarah Mason on her thoughts of her Time Magazine cover image "Person of the Year -- The Protester"; what's it like to be on the cover of a magazine without your consent, knowledge and not a single word of yours printed? Finally we talk to Johanne Sterling who was one of a group of female protesters pepper sprayed by the NYPD on Sept 24th, 2011; the incident sparked outrage and news coverage for the budding Occupy Wall Street movement as the story of NYPD brutality against helpless women stole the message of the movement which was just a week old at the time. Show interspersed with original skits, music and commentary by the RadiOWS crew.
