Today Sadie introduces us to one of the most accomplished women in history. Maya Angelou is one of those women who have been quoted so many times, it almost overshadows the incredible woman and her marvelous life behind the memorable words. Known for her famous memoirs, Maya Angelou's life has been riddled with lessons and accomplishments that could fill multiple lives, including being the first female train operator, a dancer, an actor, an author, a poet, the first black woman on the quarter, the first black women to recite poetry at a presidential inauguration and even had her likeness and name used for a barbie doll. She has also been honored with Grammy's, a lifetime achievement award, a Spingard medal, a Pulitzer prize, two NCAPP awards, numerous poetry awards, almost 50 honorary degrees, and even the presidential medal of freedom. Her notoriety is worthy of remembering forever.Trigger Warning: Slight mention of sexual assaultEpisodes Like This One: Anna May Wong, Emily Dickinson, Miss Alma Thomas, Josephine BakerFollow us on Instagram @morethanamuse.podcast

If you think of cave paintings, you think of animals and handprints and dark caves. But have you ever wondered who was behind those prehistoric works of art? You probably immediately assumed men, and you wouldn't be alone in that. However, recent studies have found that nearly 75% of the handprints found in most primitive caves were women leading to immediate outrage from many researchers... and why? Why is the default always believed to be men? Today we talk about the reasons women are believed to be pre-historic artists, why they haven't, gender roles throughout history, and also talk about the subjects of cave paintings and the famous female venus figurines. Article by Hall RockefellerEpisodes Like This One: Kenojuak Ashevak, Angel de Cora, Gertrude Käsebier, Why have there been no great women artists?Follow us on Instagram @morethanamuse.podcast

You probably haven't heard of Angle De Cora, (or Hinook-Mahiwi-Kalinaka) but this artist and designer from the Winnebago/Ho-chunk indigenous community and once was considered "The First Great Indian Artist," (which today we're able to see as a twisted, backhanded, and incorrect compliment), but shows how prominent her creative work was at the time, with her even being referred to as a genius by educators and professionals who admired her work. Although the grand-daughter of the Chief, she was horrifically kidnapped at a young age from her tribe, educated in Western-European standard schools, and yet was able to return to her culture through her art and leave a lasting legacy in native rights, education, and art history.Letterform Archive ArticleEpisodes Like This One: Kenojuak Ashevak, Anna May Wong, Gertrude KäsebierFollow us on Instagram @morethanamuse.podcast

We had a fuzzy recollection of this 24-hour news cycle name that we heard early in 45's presidency but had forgotten because of the 24-hour news cycle we all lived through the past four years. Director Sonia Kennebeck has done a deep dive into this story following Reality as well as her families struggle with a government who punishes its citizens for whistleblowing even if it's in the countries best interest.  Take a listen to our conversation with Sonia as we talk about the United States vs. Reality Winner, Edward Snowden, the strange goings on while filming in Russia, and how dangerous it is working on these types of documentary stories.  Follow Sonia Kennebeck on Twitter, IG, and Codebreaker Films  Update on Reality Winner via CBS News, July 2022--Be well, stay safe, Black Lives Matter, AAPI Lives Matter, and abortion is normal. Thanks for listening and for your support!

The creatures of mythology are often similarly afflicted... and yet, hidden history is riddled with the stories of women who turned into monstrous forms... but maybe for good reason?

We're talking about the legends surrounding women of mythos, and the misogyny behind their lore that shows how deep the fear of women runs throughout our history and attempts to answer questions like "what is the world's obsession with women being pretty even when they're "evil"?" and "Are any of these female monster myths rooted in anything other than sexism?"Episodes Like This One: 19th Century Gothic Horror Authors, Mary Shelley,  Feminine RageFollow us on Instagram @morethanamuse.podcast

On October 4, Women in Film and Television Vancouver – AKA WIFTV – announced that it would be making some significant changes to its name, its long-running Vancouver International Women in Film Festival, and its logo. In a letter to the WIFTV membership, they wrote, “We believe that everybody who has faced historical exclusion and marginalization due to patriarchy and sexism is deserving of our organization's support. However, we have received ongoing feedback from our community members that WIFTV's current name does not welcome or include them, which goes against our values and mission as an organization… It's vital that WIFTV's language evolves with the times so that we can continue our mission of advancing and celebrating gender equity in screen-based media.” In this poignant episode, WIFTV's Executive Director Eli Morris joins Sabrina Rani Furminger to discuss WIFTV's journey to this historic moment, the barriers faced by trans and genderqueer people in the film and television industry, and the role that anger can play in social equity work.
