THE FIRST SEX is seeking some enthusiastic feminists to join our team. This a co-ed media project of The Amazon Xociety, but women are especially invited to participate. The show is a collaborative effort and that is the ONLY way it is going to stay on the air. That means we need YOU to get involved! The show we produce is a reflection of the collective work we put into it. Join us if you want to have fun, build solidarity, become a media activist, and learn more about the important issues facing women.
Are you a teenager? We are looking for a some bright teens to produce a youth segment on your issues and from your perspective. Afterall, young Amazons need to express themselves too!
