Jennifer and Kaylia resist the urge to sing Rebel Girl while discussing this new Netflix movie. Mostly. Join us for a conversation about white feminism, intersectionality, the frustration with sexist dress codes, and of course how all this affects the boys. Does this very earnest film go far enough to radicalize the next generation of feminists? Does Vivian actually learn anything? What exactly is going to happen to Mitchell and the scholarship money? Get out your sharpies, your bathrobes, and your dancing shoes… Moxie Girls Fight Back.
