This episode of podmissum features Kathy Spillar, the executive vice-president of Feminist Majority Foundation and the Feminist Majority, national organizations working toward women’s equality, empowerment, and non-violence. In addition, she is the executive editor of Ms. magazine. Ms. Spillar has been a national leader in the struggle to counter the effects of extremist anti-abortion groups that target women’s reproductive health clinics and has fought to bring such extremists to justice. During her tenure as executive editor of Ms. magazine that publication has increased its investigative reporting, exposing sweatshops, forced prostitution, and forced abortions in the U.S. territory of the Northern Mariana Islands, and has uncovered connections between Dr. George Tiller’s convicted murderer, Scott Roeder, and anti-abortion extremists who promote violence.

Ms. Spillar spoke at Trinity’s Upper School Community Time on 9 December 2013. We begin with Aniqa Rahman ’14, a member of the community time council, who introduces Ms. Spillar.
