On the Rag: Wearing our yoga pants into the fires of hell

Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden, Michèle A’Court tackle the past month in women, with thanks to our friends at The Women’s Bookshop

This month on On the Rag, we have a lot of making up to do after skipping out on our July episode. You haven’t missed much though, because Brian Tamaki is still screaming about abortion being premeditated murder! As if demonic pagan rituals weren’t enough, we also celebrate the mana wahine protecting Ihumātao, the positive changes being made around the sexual assault court process and laugh at the men who still think they can win a point against Serena Williams.
