International Women's Day: Koa Beck in conversation with Judy Trinh


A highly effective, impassioned debut which masterfully outlines the progress and flaws of the feminist movement.

CBC’s Judy Trinh hosts a conversation with Koa Beck, former editor-in-chief of Jezebel and co-host of “The #MeToo Memos” on WNYC’s The Takeaway, who’s recent book White Feminism: From Suffragettes to Influencers and Who They Leave Behind is “a timely and impassioned exploration of how our society has commodified feminism and continues to systematically shut out women of color".
