Feminism FOR REAL: reflections on being real and male feminism

Beverley Jacobs is a Mohawk member of the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory, Bear Clan. Her name is Gowehgyuseh, which means "She's Visiting." She is the immediate past president of the Native Women's Association of Canada. 

Here, she and her partner Patrick Sandy share reflections on the meaning of feminism in their lives. 

Patrick Sandy also reads a poem on male feminist and invisible activist by Robert Animikii Horton from Feminism FOR REAL: Deconstructing the academic-industrial complex of feminism.

This recording was done at the Vancouver book launch of Feminism FOR REAL, at Rhizome Café on April 14, 2011. It first aired on Worm's-Eye View: Grassroots News, on CJSF 90.1 FM. Worm's-Eye View brings alternative, community-oriented social justice programming to the Lower Mainland of BC. We are an collective-volunteer space for student and community journalists to learn and grow.

Thanks to Jane Williams of the Redeye Collective (Vancouver Cooperative Radio, CFRO 102.7 FM) for graciously sharing her time and recording skills.
