Open Thread: Naomi Wolf and Jaclyn Friedman on Democracy Now!
Writer and Douchebag Decree-recipient Naomi Wolf debated Jaclyn Friedman (executive director of Women, Action & the Media) about the sexual assault allegations against Julian Assange today on Democracy Now!. It's in two parts. Anna Overseas has provided a transcript of the first part.
TRIGGER WARNING: These conversations deal heavily with rape and consent and may be triggering (it was for Friedman).
Here's Part II (transcript of first 12 minutes here. Thanks again, Anna Overseas!)
There's a lot that goes on in this talk, but I wanted to link to the "Let's Talk About It" campaign Friedman (and some of our Twitter followers) have mentioned, which was started by Swedish women to talk about their own sexual assault experiences. If you're on Twitter, make sure to check out both the #talkaboutit and #Mooreandme campaigns still happening! (What's #Mooreandme? Read here and check Tigerbeatdown for updates).
