In this episode, host Sarah Banet-Weiser talks with guests Francesca Sobande and Jilly Kay about their recent research, including how Black women in Britain are creating their own digital spaces. They discuss the history of how women’s voices have been silenced in public spaces, from the ducking stool to the NDA, and the nuances of when silence becomes an active form of presence. They also discuss femvertising and the role of capitalism in feminist media — focusing throughout on the importance of parsing the contradictions of feminist scholarship.
