The paltry sentencing of Brock Turner, aka 'the Stanford rapist', caused fury all over the world. On this episode of The Misandry Hour, host Clementine Ford discusses rape culture, social response and the limits of the law with feminist writers Anne Theriault, Kate Harding and Lou Taylor.

On April 6, Clementine Ford hosted TINATalks 3, an initiative of the YWCA Victoria. Joined by guests Kate McLennan, Jordan Raskopoulos and Rebecca Shaw, Clementine led a discussion about comedy, feminism and representation.
"Funny Talk: Arming Up For The Feminist Battleground" is that panel!
REBECCA SHAW- Rebecca is a Sydney based writer and co-host of one of our favourite podcasts, Bring a Plate. She's a fantastically acerbic and witty cultural commentator with work appearing on The Guardian, SBS and lots more. Check out her Twitter feeds, @brocklesnitch and the satirical @notofeminism
JORDAN RASKOPOULOS- Jordan got her start as one of the creators of Australian Network Ten’s sketch comedy program The Ronnie Johns Good Times Campfire Jamboree Half Hour Show Now On Television (The Ronnie Johns Half Hour). The show was nominated for two Logie awards, including “most outstanding comedy series” and was a cult comedy hit in Australia and internationally. She's probably best known as the frontwoman of comedy rock legends The Axis of Awesome and for the flurry of support she received recently for "coming out" as a transgender woman. Watch her funny and brave video on the subject here- https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kDAKBzFFa6U
KATE MCLENNAN- Kate is an award winning actress, comedian and writer. Her list of achievements, frankly, is too long to list here but we will mention that you've DEFINITELY seen her at a Fringe festival or on Offspring, The Project, Stingers, SlideShow and a "number of sketch shows cut down in their prime." However, we love her most of all on the Katering Show, of which she is co- writer and co-star. Have you seen it? You definitely should have because it's the best. http://thekateringshow.com/
