Join us for an interactive live taping of one of Marie Claire and Esquire's Best Sex Podcasts! UNSCREWED is feminist trailblazer Jaclyn Friedman's show about the politics of sexual freedom. We'll explore why some of the best new storytelling about rape culture doesn't focus on victims at all, zooming in instead on perpetrators and their enablers. Jaclyn will be joined by two of the women blazing that trail: Nancy Schwartzman, the filmmaker behind the award-winning new documentary Roll Red Roll, and Bernadine Truth, CEO of Know Your Truths. Speak Your Truths., LLC. Join them to explore the pain, power and potential in shifting the female gaze to men who hurt women.
Jaclyn Friedman is a writer, educator and activist, and creator of four books including Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World Without Rape (one of Publishers’ Weekly’s Top 100 Books of 2009) and her latest, Unscrewed: Women, Sex, Power and How to Stop Letting the System Screw Us All. Her podcast, also called Unscrewed, is paving new paths to sexual liberation, and was named one of the Best Sex Podcasts by both Marie Claire and Esquire.
Friedman’s work has popularized the “yes means yes” standard of sexual consent that has been made into law in several U.S. states and has been codified on countless campuses around the country and the world. Her commentary has appeared in outlets including The New York Times, Vox, Time, The Washington Post, Glamour and The Guardian. Friedman is a founder and the former Executive Director of Women, Action & the Media, where she led the successful #FBrape campaign to apply Facebook’s hate-speech ban to content that promotes gender-based violence.
