On Backtalk, Bitch editors Amy and Sarah discuss this week in pop culture. This week we talk about the Texas anti-abortion laws that have forced all but ten clinics to close in the nation’s second largest state. The Supreme Court is hearing arguments this week on whether these restrictive “TRAP” (targeted regulations of abortion providers) laws should be upheld. And we discuss a judge’s ruling in pop star Kesha’s case to get out of her contract with producer Dr. Luke, who she says was abusive and sexually assaulted her.
Also, on Backtalk, we feature one thing we read, saw, and heard.
READ: Margaret Atwood’s The Edible Woman is great read and a scathing criticism of the pressures of being a young woman.
SAW: Melissa Harris-Perry’s MSNBC show was groundbreaking and we’re sad to see it go.
HEARD: Love funk and puns? Alissia will be your new fave.
