The Way with Anoa

Solidarity with My Sisters

Episode Summary

This episode is a mashup of commentary discussing the March 8 International Women's Strike and three interviews conducted post interview to showcase the varying experience of Women. Anoa makes the case for researching and understanding the motivation and intent behind the day's actions. There is power in spoken word, and listening to the experiences of others can help us grow as we continue to build spaces for opposing structural and systemic issues. Today is as much about sending a message as it is about the value of women standing up and speaking their truth. This is the beginning of a new way of discussing feminism and organizing around "women's issues." All issues are women's issues. We will be heard.
