The First Sex is specifically created for a progrssive women's audience. Your TFS team is composed of feminists from a variety of backgrounds and ethnicities. That being said, many progressive men will enjoy the program and learn a lot!
The First Sex is a one-hour bi-weekly feminist human rights and social justice radio program that deals with issues such as health, the environment, globalization, political science, media bias, peace and criminal justice concerns, all from a uniquely feminine perspective. The First Sex airs on KPFT 90.1 FM (a Pacifica Foundation station - the only non-profit radio network in the USA) and can be heard on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month at 10:00pm.
The show feature interviews, lectures, and music by women artists.

Our lectures will be on issues of particular interest to women such as: feminism, rape, sex-trafficking, female genital mutilation, welfare reform, corporate welfare, and the war on the poor (who are mostly women and their children).
