Episode Description

At age 12, Roxane Gay suffered a violent attack that changed the course of her life. But she overcame the resulting pain to emerge as a leading voice in the modern feminist movement. In her acclaimed essay collection, Bad Feminist, Gay gives a voice to women of color, queer and transgender women, and others left behind by traditional feminism. BREAKING BIG host Carlos Watson talks with Gay about her writing, her teaching and the next stage of her career.
