In a special segment of “By Any Means Necessary” Eugene Puryear and Sean Blackmon are joined by author Jenny Brown to talk about her new book “Birth Strike: The Hidden Fight over Women’s Work” now available from PM Press, the perverse motives behind anti-abortion and anti-birth control legislation and campaigns, the exploitation of motherhood by capitalism, what an organized birth strike could look like, and the intersection of white supremacy, male supremacy and birth policy.
Mitch Jeserich of KPFA’s Letters and Politics show interviewed me about Birth Strike for this April 3 broadcast, now available for download and on iTunes at this link.
Doug Henwood interviewed me about Birth Strike for his radio show Behind the News (March 28). We talk about the history of population panics—both about too much and too little population—and the implications of the U.S.’s record-low birth rate for feminist organizing. I’m the second interviewee in the show. Listen at the link. http://www.leftbusinessobserver.com/Radio.html#S190328
I was interviewed by Fran Luck about the birth strike for the feminist radio show on WBAI-FM in New York, Joy of Resistance, which “covers the ongoing worldwide struggle of women for full liberation” and airs on Thursdays 7-8 p.m. One correction, the book is not hot off the press yet, it will be available March 1. Also I said that German workers work twelve weeks a year less than U.S. workers—the correct figure is 10.5 weeks less.
