Ep 9: Flatbush Girl Gets Political

Tune in here to the “feminist from Flatbush” talk about the “glamour” of politics, the pride she takes in her civic duty and the power of social media.

Join us for our final episode in Season 1 of the Chutzpah podcast with special guest, Adina Miles — a.k.a. Flatbush Girl. Miles made waves last year when she kicked off the #FrumWomenHaveFaces campaign, a social media effort to protest the trend among Orthodox media to remove or blot out photographs of women. And she hasn’t slowed down since. This past summer, Miles ran for Democratic district leader in the 45th Assembly District. While she did not win, she garnered 3,000 signatures and an outpouring of support. Tune in here to hear Flatbush Girl talk about the “glamour” of politics, the pride she takes in her civic duty, the power of social media and the nearly-impossible task of surviving as a “feminist in Flatbush.” Her determination to fight for women and other marginalized segments of the Orthodox community has lost her many friends (and even family members), but has been well worth the cost, she says. For inspiration on how to keep fighting the good fight — whoever and wherever you are — tune into the rebel rouser fighting to have her voice heard, no matter the consequences. You won’t want to miss this episode.
