Dare to Use the F-Word

Dare to Use the F-Word tells the stories of today’s feminists through the art, the ideas, the community, and the activism that define them. These monthly podcasts, co-produced by the Barnard Center for Research on Women and Barnard College Communications, will bring you interviews, conversations, and voices making change to create a more just world. And there’s no better place to do this than at Barnard. For nearly 125 years, this College, in the vibrant City of New York, with the first center for research on women in the US, has been a hub of young feminist activity—a place where theory and practice, scholarship and action, converge. We dare to use the F-Word. We hope you’ll join us.
