On Backtalk, Bitch Media editors Amy and Sarah talk about current feminism and pop culture. This week, we talk about Beyonce's visual album Lemonade with writer and photographer Margaret Jacobsen, who wrote “What Beyonce's Lemonade Means to Me As a Black Woman,” and talk about the themes of self-love and stunning imagery. And we chat with Bitch co-founder, editorial and creative director Andi Zeisler about her new book, We Were Feminists Once, about “marketplace feminism” that centers the movement as a brand rather than an action.
On Backtalk, we always share one thing we read, heard, and saw this week.
READ: Sarah is so glad for Melissa Broder's So Sad Today, a collection of essays about her anxiety and depression.
SAW: No Mas Bebés is a necessary documentary about the coerced sterilization of Mexican women in Los Angeles during the 1970s.
