21:01 Question of the Week
" First I want to say that I used to attend the Transgender Meetings you conducted in Albuquerque. They were very helpful and supportive. My questions is, I have been taking hormones off and on for about 3 years now. However, I am still very much in the closet and afraid anyone will see the change. I will need to go to the dentist soon and also in for a physical (insurance reasons). Do I really need to let the dentist and the doctor know that I am taking Estrogen? Is it really necessary? "

38:48 In a shocking new decision, the Supreme Court has undermined the right to operate abortion clinics as well as women's access to the services that they provide. Advising us on this new ruling is Terry O'Neill, feminist attorney, professor and activist, as well as Membership Vice President of the National Organization for Women. Terry reviews the case for us and comments on the ramifications of this disappointing new ruling. She also introduces other issues of importance to women today.

Terry O'Neill has taught feminist legal theory and international women's rights law, in addition to corporate law and legal ethics. Using her background in law to fight important legal battles for feminists, O'Neill has written key amicus briefs at the federal, trial and appellate levels on abortion rights issues for Louisiana NOW, Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union.
