Jennifer Abod

Jennifer Abod is a feminist filmmaker, media producer and professor who is considered one of the leaders of the second wave of American feminism. Abod has a Ph.D. in Intercultural Media Education and Women’s Studies and is co-founder and singer of the Women's Liberation Rock Band, based in New Haven, CT. Abod has also been active in radio, hosting and producing community, public, and commercial programs in New Haven, Boston, and Philadelphia for over 20 years. She was the first woman in Connecticut to host a nightly AM talk-radio program, The Jennifer Abod Show. Abod hosted the show for eight years and was also a co-writer of The Liberation of Lydia, the first feminist radio soap opera.

In 1988 Abod founded her own media production company, Profile Productions, through which she distributes work featuring feminist activists and cultural workers, particularly women of color and lesbians who influence broad constituencies. Abod also worked at Digital Equipment Corporation for a number of years, directing, writing, and producing corporate audio and videotapes. It was during her time at the corporation that Abod gained access to the skills that she would need to document women’s lives. Abod eventually completed her first audio documentary, Audre Lorde: An Audio Profile and in 2002 she completed her first feature documentary, THE EDGE OF EACH OTHER'S BATTLES: THE VISION OF AUDRE LORDE, which screened at various national and international venues.
