49:34 Questions of the Week

"Hi, My Name is Tracy and I am a trade unionist and loving every minute of it, I fight for equal rights and opportunity for Women, I feel that the Women's rights movement is moving backwards at a fast rate. My question to you is, I have been and the entire executive that I belong to subjected to harassment and told on numerous occasions to shut up or we would be removed. Should I continue with the fight or just give in? because we have gone to every level to ask for help and was denied and threatened even more. I am suffering with confusion because of all my commitment to this strong and striving Union."
(From: Tracy)

64:12 Announcements: Boston area & National events
There was a time for many of us - however faint the memory - when we judged the quality of our lives by the variety of colors in our crayon box. Coloring comprises one of the most pervasive and creative exercises performed by young children, yet the subjects colored are all too often left to chance. Julie Novak, author of a children's coloring book, talks with us about two coloring books created with the intention of planting seeds of appreciation for gender fairness in young minds.
