    Jennifer Baumgardnerand Amy Richards’ book Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism, and The Future was released in 2000 as a chronicle of the third-wave feminist movement they were experiencing. The book has since become a classic of contemporary feminist literature and the 20th anniversary edition hit shelves March 10. In this episode of BUST’s Poptarts Podcast—recorded before the Corona Virus pandemic sent us all into social distancing mode—the dynamic activist duo looks back on Manifesta 20 years later, imagines the future of feminism, and discusses what the Harvey Weinstein verdictmeans for women. (Remember him?) 

    About:  BUST's Poptarts is a twice-monthly podcast hosted by magazine editors Emily Rems and Callie Watts that celebrates women in pop culture. The first half of each episode is devoted to a hot topic in entertainment, and in the second half, a segment called "Whatcha Watchin'?," Callie and Emily dig into all the shows, movies, books, music, videos, and podcasts they've enjoyed since the last episode, and either praise or pan each experience

    This podcast was produced for BUST by Cait Moldenhauer and Jessy Caron at More Banana Productions and was recorded by Logan del Fuego.

    Today we attended an amazing action in NYC that was organized by activists Amber Tamblyn, Sarah Sophie Flicker, Paola Mendoza, Nelini Stamp and Yara Travieso. About 100 women met in the morning in front of 100 Court Street, the courthouse where the Harvey Weinstein case is taking place. We wore black eye masks and chanted the lyrics to the protest song created in Chile by the activist women of @Lastesis, and then the group headed uptown on the subway to protest some more in front of Trump Tower.

    We were proud to stand in sisterhood with these inspiring women.

    Callie even got her craft on and made a Rose McGowan necklace :-)

    Below are the lyrics, learn them, for I’m sure there will be more of this in 2020, the fight continues.

    “Un Violador En Tu Camino”

    Original Spanish Text By Las Tesis

    “A Rapist In Your Path” 

    Patriarchy is our judge⁣

    That imprisons us at birth⁣. And our punishment⁣

    Is the violence you can see.⁣⁣

    It's femicide.⁣

    Impunity for my killer.⁣

    It’s our disappearances.⁣

    It’s rape.⁣

    And it's not my fault, not where I was, not how I dressed.⁣

    And it's not my fault, not where I was, not how I dressed.⁣

    And it's not my fault, not where I was, not how I dressed.⁣

    And it's n ooo t my fault, not where I was, not how I dressed.⁣

    And the rapist WAS you.⁣

    And the rapist IS you.⁣

    Its the cops,⁣

    It’s The judges,⁣

    It’s The system,⁣

    It’s The president.⁣

    This oppressive state is a macho rapist.⁣

    This oppressive state is a macho rapist.⁣

    Violador eres tú.⁣

    El violador eres tú.⁣

    El violador eres tú.⁣

    El violador eres tú.
