In this episode, Sasha is joined by Harriet Fraad, feminist activist, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist, for a discussion on feminism and class. They talk about how class needs to be at the basis for all social justice activism, her thoughts on the failures and successes of the 2nd wave, debates within feminism like trans activism, Gloria Steinem and the corporate and government sabotage of feminism and the racial equality movement, and the destructive mindset feminists should avoid if they want to be successful in the movement.

In this episode, we attempt to chronicle what we consider the decline of the ACLU. We begin with a game where we take a drink every time Chase Strangio tells a lie in this interview on Democracy Now.

Identity Crisis Episode 21 The Decline of the ACLU
