Episode 2.28 Girls Resist! with KaeLyn Rich

Content warning for some discussion of rape culture and sexual harassment.

This week I got to chat with writer, activist, and organizer KaeLyn Rich, who (alongside a dozen other super impressive things) is the author of the new book Girls Resist! A Guide to Activism, Leadership, and Starting a RevolutionWe talked about intergenerational feminist coalitions, how danged smart the youths are, and why girls, femmes, trans and non-binary folks need to be at the centre of the revolution. Also here are some links!

Secret Feminist Agenda is recorded and produced by Hannah McGregor on the traditional and unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.

One thought on “Episode 2.28 Girls Resist! with KaeLyn Rich

  1. What a brilliant project that Kaelyn Rich has written here, she has made a resource for girls who experience oppression on a day to day basis for a variety of reasons. Something that teaches them that it’s okay to stand up for what they believe in and it doesn’t matter how old they are. Kids know the difference between right and wrong and sometimes all they need is a guide telling them what they can do to help themselves and the people around them. If we can raise kids to be strong and kind and open to change, I think we will begin to see real change in our world.
