Roaring at MSU: Womens Issues and Television

Institution

Morehead State University

Abstract

Issues like domestic violence, eating disorders and feminism are difficult topics to tackle. With the MSU TV show "Hear Me Roar", our cast and crew are spreading awareness of these hard to broach subjects. The show is broadcast on a biweekly basis live from the Breckenridge Hall facilities at Morehead State University. Our program takes on a friendly, familiar half hour format. With this talk show type format, we strive to involve MSU students, faculty and members of the Eastern Kentucky community to express their views and opinions on Womens Issues around us and across the globe. We mix entertainment in the form of local musicians, authors and actors with educated opinions, statistics and feminist theory. “Hear Me Roar” also encourages guests to bring their friends and watch the show unfold live from our green room. This aspect of student participation has brought attention to local events on campus and across the region. Most importantly, the mixture of television and serious subjects brings the attention of the students to our half hour experiment in entertainment.
