Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Kate Raphael discusses Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, and the blockbuster film based on the book. Is Flynn's portrayal of a serial rape fabricator a transgressive reversal of gender stereotypes or a promotion of dangerous sexist myths?
Then we talk with Karuna Jaggar, Executive Director of Breast Cancer Action, about the Susan B. Komen Foundation's latest deal with the devil: its partnership with the company Baker-Hughes, which makes tools for fracking oil and gas. The company painted 1000 of its drill bits Komen's signature pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and donated $100,000 to Komen.
And Tara Dorabji interviews author Roxane Gay, about her new collection of essays, "Bad Feminist." Gay is also the author of the novel AN UNTAMED STATE and a frequent contributor to Salon, The Guardian and The New York Times Book Review.
