Backtalk: Donald Trump & Feminism in the Food Industry

On Backtalk, Bitch Media editors Amy and Sarah talk about current feminism and pop culture. This week, the big news is that Republicans are turning on Donald Trump, putting together a viral ad about some of the most sexist things he’s said. We also discuss race and gender at the James Beard Awards and how the restaurant industry is a hotbed of sexual harassment.  

Also on this episode, shout-out to some artists to follow on Instagram: photographer @arvidabystrom and the folks featured in recent article “No Filter,” @highmija, @mujeresdemaiz, @thebiggirlscode, and @xicanisma_.

On Backtalk, we always share one thing we read, heard, and saw this week. 

READ: Sarah recommends the novel X, which is a story about the teen years of Malcolm X written by his daughter Ilyasah Shabazz. 

SAW: Amy is binge-watching the new season of House of Cards

HEARD: We love this song “Earth Intro” by musician and activist shirlette ammons.
