A mainstream media conversation about Steubenville and rape culture


I was thrilled to be included in a conversation about rape culture last night on The Ed Show on MSNBC. The segment focused on the problematic media coverage of yesterday’s Steubenville verdict and included me, Professor Salamishah Tillet, and Irin Carmon.

And what happens when you have three out feminists talking about rape culture on cable news?! Magic.

Check out the segment below. It was a privilege to be included in this important and substantive conversation. (The video comes with a transcript.)

    I’m pleased to read about this appearance, Zerlina, but I see no “segment below” (I’m assuming an embedded video?} or transcript. Have you forgotten to include them?

    I saw this and you all had great things to say, but personally I feel like it does a great disservice to the conversation to only have women comment on rape stories. It perpetuates that this is a female issue and not a human decency issue.
