057: MELINDA TANKARD REIST – LEADING A COLLECTIVE SHOUT
There are not many like her. Melinda Tankard Reist is bold, intelligent and not willing to stand by and watch our women and girls be sexually exploited in any way. It results in physical threats and targeted, vitriolic, social media attacks, but Melinda puts the cause above others feelings towards her. Melinda uses her voice as she is best able and encourages others to do the same stating that “silence is the language of complicity, speaking out is the language of change”. Hear from Melinda herself why pornography and the sexualisation of women and girls needs to change and what you can do to be a part of the solution.
Susie might not have the impact of Melinda Tankard Reist, but watching a simple episode of Fuller House has got her thinking about the power of TV and how significantly standards have changed in the last 29 years.
