We unearth 2009’s Jennifer’s Body to examine its feminist legacy and failures, and have an in-depth discussion on the objectification of women’s trauma through multiple media sources. A decade later, we’re still reclaiming the word “salty” to mean beautiful (thanks, Diablo Cody).

Regarding your discussion this show on men behaving badly being taken as artistic and creative, and women behaving badly being taken as mental illness, I was reminded of an article in Yeoja Magazine by Betti Hunter, “Where Were All The Female Beatniks?”. The whole thing is a good read but this quote really struck me:
“At the Naropa Institute tribute to Ginsberg in 1994, Gregory Corso was fielding questions from the audience when a young woman asked him why there were so few female writers within the movement. Corso paused, then leant forward and said; ‘There were women, they were there, I knew them, their families put them in institutions, they were given electric shocks. In the 50’s if you were male you could be a rebel, but if you were female your families had you locked up.'”
Y I K E S.
Thank you for another great show, and keep landing punches on the patriarchy. They can’t lock all us Harpies up.
Thanks for this link Syne! We’ll definitely check it out.
