EddCast 4: The Feminist Hour on Miley Cyrus, Part 2

Elizabeth Padilla (@Lizzylandia)—a transnational feminist, woman of color, and asker of questions—joins me in the second installment of the ongoing EddCast series: The Feminist Hour.

This episode is Part 2 of our study of Miley Cyrus. In this episode we shifted from discussing her achievements in empowerment to address some of her problems and failures. We discussed issues of race, class, and appropriation that have been widely talked about already, particularly by women of color.
