Your Call: How do we respond to misogyny in everyday life?

On today's Your Call, we will respond to the terrible shootings near Santa Barbara, California last Friday that left 13 wounded and 6 dead.  The shooter targeted a sorority because he said had been rejected by women. Hundreds of thousands have responded on Twitter since the event - speaking out about the culture of misogyny that pervades their lives. So what conversations do we need to be having about gender discrimination, harassment, and outright violence? Join the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.

Guests:
