The Empowered FeFes

Three of the Empowered FeFes

Three of the Empowered FeFes

Starting early for an expanded hour from 2-3 pm PST, 94.1 fm, KPFA.

Three award-winning films made by young disabled women in Chicago.  FeFe is a word for female, and these women live up their names by telling folks how it is when it comes to being a young African-American woman with disabilities growing up in the Windy City. Funny, truthful and poignant, these films ooze with disability pride and empowerment:

–Beyond Disability: The FeFe Story
–Why They Gotta Do Me Like That:  The FeFes Take on Bullying
–Doing It:  Sex, Disability and Videotape

This trailer has been muted by YouTube.  Luckily, it’s captioned for both hearing and the deaf.

Rhyolite necklace from Robin Moore

Speaking of empowerment,  how about feeling empowered to strap a Pushing Limits bumper sticker to your wheel chair, cane, Segway or hot red convertible.  During the show,  you can stock up on stickers, Empowered FeFes DVD’s, and other items, like this lovely rhyolite necklace donated by Robin Moore.  All will be available if you donate to the radio station that is empowered by sweet radical–left wing goodness for the past 60+ years, KPFA.

Hosted for KPFA’s funddrive by Sheela Gunn-Cushman, Shelley Berman and Adrienne Lauby.
