39:15 In the face of growing reactionary forces and declining fate for the lesser privileged, some women are banding together on a global level to try to move things in a positive direction. Long-time feminist activist Deanne Matte joins us to talk about the Women's Global Charter for Humanity, a global declaration of solidarity in intent among activist women. Deanne was an instigator of the World March of Women in 2000 and now coordinates this ongoing feminist global solidarity action network against poverty and violence against women.
