#4 Periods (Talkin’ ‘Bout My Menstruation)

Jess and Nida bring you a discussion on menstruation.

They'll cycle through what it means personally, culturally and even socially. Don't forget, you can egg them on with a spot of commentary via E-mail or the Facebook page.
Take it as red that they'll keep up the flow of conversation and talk ova the whole bleeding thing - period.

#3 Queer and feminist biography (She Herself I)

Ever said to yourself, 'Story of my life, that is!' 

Well, if you're one of the women we look at in this episode, you might say it while holding up an actual book. Tonight, Daria, Nicky and Nida see if the world of queer and feminist autobiography can be judged by its cover.

#1 Fashion and Appearance (Don We Now Our Gay Apparel)

We talk a lot about what we get up to when we're naked...but what about when we're not? In this episode, fashion victims Daria, Gabbie and Jess take a look at the costumes, clothes and coverings of the queer woman.

(Wait. It's PC to call them 'fashion survivors' these days.)
