On the Rag – November edition ft. Botched eyeliner and human whack-a-mole


Every month host Alex Casey is joined by comedian/writer Michele A’Court and Mana magazine editor Leonie Hayden to discuss what happened in the world of women over the preceding four weeks. Better late than never, they return with help from their legendary sponsors at BON tampons and dressed by the costume wizards at First Scene

It’s been a few weeks since T**** became the President, so the On the Rag team assemble over some delicious cakes to talk business. How effective is White Ribbon Week? How in fresh hell is abortion still illegal? And why is liquid eyeliner such a treacherous battle? Leonie talks about being in the room for Aaradhna’s Earth-shattering speech at the VNZMAs, Michele shares her experience of banning men from a Facebook thread and Alex tells you what to do when your cat escapes a new house.


Thankfully, it’s not all bad news. There’s plenty of ways to help out before Christmas, a growing groundswell towards equal pay and a new harassment hotline that we may or may not have made up. There’s also the eternal good tidings that BON tampons remain with us every step of the way. To all our beautiful bleeding listeners, please check them out for 100% New Zealand, 100% organic tampons delivered directly to your door – it’s about the coolest tip we can ever offer you.
