A discussion of the roles women have played in constituting radical counterpublic cultures within cities-—from Ellen Stewart’s La Mama theater to Judy Chicago’s Womanhouse project in the 70s to the contemporary explosion of “girls rock camp” programs throughout the world—and how the participants’ own feminist musicking and educational activism work is continuing, broadening, and redefining the terms of that legacy.

With: Lauren Onkey, LaRonda Davis, Karla Schickele, Maureen Mahon
