Do you ever listen to Top 40?

I do, yeah. I listen to a lot of Satellite radio with my son. We’ll listen to classics, rock and roll, and we listen to pop radio. And you can really, really tell how good a pop song is if a six-year-old gets it.

Is that true?

We’ll be listening to ‘80s on 8 and “Pour Some Sugar on Me” will come on. And to my son I’m like, 'You know how you feel about that 5 Seconds of Summer song? That’s how I felt about this song.’ I explained to him that it was the first song that was mine, and he said, 'I’m glad that people can make better music now.’ It kind of broke my heart but part of me was like, 'That’s how it goes.’ Otherwise you become the old man yelling at the kids to get off your lawn.

Speaking of throwbacks…At one point your were, like, the pioneer of guyliner. Any way you might practice your skills on me?

[Laughs] I’m not that good at doing it! I feel bad. I’m gonna mess it up. We could try if you want, but I’ve literally never put eyeliner on someone else before.

Reading Response 1

In the article, A Day Without Feminism by Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards (2000), the authors explore a very valid and enlightening point when they examine what life would be like if this were still 1970. The underlying theme of which is a portrayal of life for women in the year 1970, from the limited opportunities in sports and science in their schooling to being legally encouraged to stay in abusive situations, not to mention the assault on women’s bodies by the doctors that only need the husband’s approval for such. Looking back over the past 40 years, one can see so much advancement in the lives of women that it would be easy to say that the women’s rights movement has achieved its goals of social, political and economic equality of the sexes, but we still see these injustices occurring and in some places even more radically then before.

The part of the article that I found most intriguing and thought provoking for my own life, was the paragraph in which the authors talk about what it was like for a lesbian in 1970. The authors mention that lesbians were rarely out and if they were, they were only accepted in the bars owned by organized crime as they could see the untapped potential of such patrons. They also mention that if one did not know about the bars, she would be forced into a life of loneliness. I predict that many lesbians stayed in the closet and married men, had babies and many were most likely miserable, yearning for something that they could not even fathom being a possibility.

In my examination of myself in respect to the lifestyle choices of 1970, as stated in the article, I have to wonder what path I would have chosen. I picture a life with a husband I am not attracted to and children, which more than likely, I cried after creating, but I would like to think I would not have gone that route. I might have been an old maid type, working for a company or a family under the man, so to say, in a variety of situations, but that doesn’t quite fit my personality either. I am more keen to believe that I would have been a mannish looking lesbian sitting in the mob owned bar, smoking a cigarette and drinking whiskey on the rocks. But the truth of the matter is, I might not have gotten that choice at all, I may have been found out before I established a place in any one of those situations and I may have been beaten and murdered in a back alley, just for who I was. I do know that I would not be the person I am today with all that I have achieved, I would not be taking this class or be able to have my own apartment in the city and the kind of friendships I have been able to develop through a shared experience of being LGBT. While I owe a huge thanks to the women’s right movement and do believe that feminism has changed our lives, I also know that our work is not done, not even close to done.

“SLUT is truthful, raw, and immediate! Experience this play and witness what American young women live with everyday.”–Gloria Steinem

Remember the slut at your school? Whether used as a slur or reclaimed as an expression of sexy confidence, this word has been used as an acceptable excuse for rape, bullying, and the sexual double standard. In the spirit of The Vagina Monologues, this riveting, critically acclaimed play, written in collaboration with New York City high school students, sheds light on enduring feminist issues. The play is accompanied by production notes, a guide for talk-backs, and provocative essays by Carol Gilligan, Jennifer Baumgardner, and Jarrod Chin of Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), among others, providing the resources to inspire change within our communities and ourselves.

Katie Cappiello and Meg McInerney are the creative director and managing director of the revolutionary feminist acting school The Arts Effect. In their ten years of teaching, they have brought theater arts programming to public, private, and special education schools worldwide. Their work has been hailed by Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Eve Ensler, Kathy Najimy, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler, and they have been honored by The National Women’s Hall of Fame and The United States Congress for their dedicated, cutting-edge work empowering young girls.
