PHENOMENAL WOMEN:  As we all mourn the immortal Maya Angelou, we also pay tribute to some lesser known feminist sheroes: African American feminist historian Stephanie Camp, who died in April at age 46, and psychologist Sandra Bem, whose work helped put an end to sex-segregated employment advertising and open up more careers to women. We also talk with Stacy Russo, editor of LIFE AS ACTIVISM: June Jordan's essays in the Progressive.

SF DocFest gets underway on Thursday and has a wide range of female-produced and gender-centered films.  This week we'll preview two of them:

FIRST FRIDAY, produced by N'jeri Eaton, directed by Mario Furloni, chronicles Oakland's "First Friday" the month after a tragic murder at what Eaton calls the crown jewel of Oakland's cultural scene.

In GOODBYE GAULEY MOUNTAIN: An Ecosexual Love Story, queer activists Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle do their bit to stop mountaintop removal in Beth's home community of West Virginia by marrying the Mountain.  They bring a mix of humor, art and sexuality to help "green the queer movement."
