GRITtv: Feminism, the Super Bowl and the Media

Sunday, 07 February 2010 13:32 By Laura Flanders, GRITtv | name.

CBS has changed its longstanding policy of not allowing issue ads during the Super Bowl to accept an anti-choice advertisement from Focus on the Family, and women’s groups are furious at the double standard: CBS still rejected an ad from a gay dating service.

Meanwhile, Nona Willis Aronowitz has a new book, Girldrive: Criss-Crossing America, Redefining Feminism, aiming to find out what kind of feminism women around the country, and Shelby Knox came from a southern conservative background to become an activist for sex education. We ask them what feminism means now and whether we should be focused on women in the media or other issues.
