Our good friends at Satya
magazine have a couple of events you might be interested in going to, should you be in the Big Apple or listening on the radio.
First is, the Satya
-produced Radio Show "Feminist Food," produced in honor of International Women's Day and playing on WBAI (99.5 FM) in New York City or on the web at www.wbai.org
. This show explores how the meat, egg and dairy industries impact animals, women and society. You can hear Satya
editors Catherine Clyne, Kymberlie Adams Matthews and Sangamithra Iyer discuss feminism on their plate, and listen to Pattrice Jones of Eastern Shore Sanctuary make connections between feminism and veganism. Satya
's Editorial Intern, Maureen Wyse, shows us how easy being vegan is and will tempt your taste buds with women-powered vegan eats and businesses, with shout-outs to Vegan Treats, Babycakes, May Wah and MooShoes.
Then, a mere two days later, you can learn about the genocide in Darfur and what you can do to help, when Satya
hosts a discussion with the Sudanese Community including native Darfurian Yahya Osman and former Sudanese Slave Simon Deng. The details: Saturday, March 11, 3-5pm, Brooklyn YWCA 30 3rd Ave., (Btw. Atlantic & State) Boardroom Lounge, 2nd floor. Free Admission, donations encouraged.
