In brief: CN: rape, sexual assault, rape culture denial, etc.
With media and rape culture expert Claudia Garcia-Rojas back on the show, we dive into the Kavanaugh coverage and reactions to allegations/testimony. This is not a Supreme Court episode; Claudia and I focus on how Kavanaugh and other players in the confirmation saga are presented by media, addressed by colleagues/legislators, and talked about around water coolers and dinner tables. We go hard at the roots and the branches of the white supremacist heteropatriarchy that continues to inflict cultural and individual damage.
