White Feminist

 

“A wickedly nasty satire with a twist that makes it all shockingly, satisfyingly real.” (Broad Street Review, Philadelphia)

Gender and privilege collide in this scathing comedy that will grab you by the pussy hat. As the host of a morning talk show, “Becky’s Time,” Lee Minora skewers and dissects the failings of non-intersectional feminism and the dangers of white women’s tears, putting the #MeToo movement, liberal guilt, and fake celebrity apologies into a blender and creating a concoction that is as absurdly hilarious as it is painfully true. With the cunning of a fool and the charm of a talk-show host, she unearths inadequacy and ineffectiveness in the face of huge social inequality. Teetering between oppressed and oppressor, Minora takes everyone to task, including herself, with a smile on her face and her middle fingers in the air. Learn more on our No Safety Net podcast:
