- What do you learn when you pay attention to the women embroiled with the action around torture, imperialism and war? Dr. Cynthia Enloe, a scholar of Political Science and Women's Studies, has made a career around this question. Among her many books are Globalization and Militarism: Feminists Make the Link; Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Womens Lives; The Curious Feminist; and, Seriously! Investigating Crashes and Crises as if Women Mattered. Her latest, 2017, is The Big Push: Exposing and Challenging Persistent Patriarchy. In this talk given at the US National Women's Studies Association in 2004, Enloe enumerated women and their roles around the US torture of prisoners in Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison. The program ends with a survey of women who appear (and sometimes speak) in the Swedish documentary WikiRebels, including member of the Icelandic parliament Birgitta Jonsdottir, and Hillary Clinton. Also heard is Julian Assange.

- In 1999, historian of technology Rachel Maines published The Technology of Orgasm: "Hysteria," the Vibrator, and Women's Sexual Satisfaction. By 2011, this history had spawned a documentary, a play, and a feature film. Program features a talk by Maines, followed by excerpts from a press conference about the film Hysteria.

The book Canada's Promises to Keep: The Charter and Violence Against Women (CASAC Report for short), tells the gripping history of Canadian feminists' work to carve out legal and economic space for fighting violence against women, in a country undergoing neoliberal structural adjustment. The promises they try to hold the country to are those in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (installed in Canada's Constitution in 1982) and the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW - ratified by Canada in 1981). A summary of the research in the book can be found here: http://www.casac.ca/content/canadas-promises-keep-charter-and-violence-against-women - CASAC stands for the Canadian Association of Sexual Assault Centres

Groups around the country have been holding Christmas bail-outs and Mothers Day Bail-Outs to free incarcerated women. most of whom are mothers, from pre-trial detention. The Connecticut Bail Fund raised $30,000 to bail out 30 women in time to be home for Mothers Day 2018. That included four women released from immigration jail.

- From the podcast series Gender at Work, feminists with experience in United Nations and aid organizations explain how policies to stop discrimination and abuse of privilege fail, and what might discourage the culture of impunity.

Since 1982, feminists in Oslo have had a regular piece of the airwaves. They consider theirs to be the first women's radio station. They go the extra mile to get mostly female-oriented content in news, interviews, and music. This hip community station is constantly renewed by being passed on to younger women through training and mentorship. Interviews from 2000 and Norwegian women's music from 1999 feature in this gem from the WINGS archive.

Even with the price of crude oil low, there are still companies investing in and working the vast bitumen mines in Alberta, and building pipelines to refining and shipping points. The local devastation is massive and the effects on local and global environment worse. Activists from Canada and Texas speak. Heard in the program: Osprey Orielle Lake, President of the Women's Earth and Climate Caucus; Crystal Lameman, a Beaver Lake Cree from Alberta working with Sierra Club and Indigenous Environmental Network Alberta; Melina Laboucan-Massimo, a Lubicon Cree environmentalist from Northern Alberta, working with Greenpeace and the Indigenous Environmental Network; Julia Trigg Crawford, Manager of her family's farm in northeast Texas, in court against TransCanada's condemnation of their land; Eleanor Fairchild, 78-year-old farmer from eastern Texas working to defend her land against the Keystone XL pipeline; Winona LaDuke, Anishinaabe indigenous rights activist and environmentalist, and Executive Director of Honor the Earth.

A loud but peaceful demonstration demanding Justice for Martha, the slain 32-year-old mother of one whose murder by a client is unsolved, also provides an occasion for discussing the general abuse of rights of women who support themselves and their families by selling sexual services.

Host: Diana Wanyonyi Featured Speakers/Guests: Chanting and screaming demonstrators; Josephine Ajiambo, an officer from Sex Workers Alliance; Mary Kiambi, an officer from International Centre for Reproductive Health in Mombasa; an unnamed sex worker who has been in the industry for more than 15 years; Esther Nelima, an officer from Coast Smart Women Against HIV/ AIDS and Violence; Francis Auma, an officer from Haki Africa, a human right organization based in Mombasa that receives complaints of rights abuses against sex workers daily; Jackline Polo-Kawere is Senior Legal Counsel in Mombasa for FIDA Kenya - a branch of the International Federation of Women Lawyers.
