Her Turn at Wort-FM Talks Feminist Economic News

Lucky Wisconsinites! WORT-FM’s broadcast, called Her Turn, highlights feminist news every Sunday morning, 11:30 AM Central.

On May 3, Her Turn’s newscaster, Lisa Goodman, talked with AEOO leader Rickey Gard Diamond about her latest book Screwnomics: How the Economy Works Against Women and Real Ways to Make Lasting Change. Rickey explains how writing this book led to her work with the US Chapter of Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom (WILPF-US), a new column at Ms. Magazine, “ Women Unscrewing Screwnomics,” and a new organizational alliance to amplify women’s economic leadership and prompt more women to learn the subject together. An Economy of Our Own is an educational nonprofit. Check out its website to learn more about its purpose and goals and its great advisory board and resources.

AEOO has begun posting @economyofourown on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and invites you to join the conversation and share it.

WILPF-US is sponsoring a Zoom series to discuss Screwnomics on Monday nights with a glass of wine and some nibbles, beginning May 18. Write to Rickey at Screwnomics.org if you’d like to register and join us for six sessions to learn more!

Thank you, WORT-FM Her Turn producers!!

An Economy of Our Own Alliance

Virginia Woolf said a woman needs a room of her own. We think women need an economy of their own, too.
