Your Call: How has the role of women in media evolved since the 1960's?

  

On the December 17th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation with author and journalist Gail Sheehy about her new memoir, “Daring: My Passages”. Sheehy blazed a trail into journalism when it was still considered a "man's world".  Today only 15% of opinion pieces are written by women and last year only 64% of bylines and on-camera appearances went to men. So what will it take to change these statistics? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

For others, it’s more of a ritual with attention to the finest detail and a commitment not to leave the house in nothing but their finest.  Fashion changes all the time, from Goth to Steampunk to the dapper look. But for women like, Thúy H. Nguyễn, who prefer to dress in a more masculine style, it can be a challenge.

More than 160 years since Sojourner Truth asked, "Ain’t I a Woman?", 30 after Geraldine Ferraro's vice-presidential run, and 23 years after Anita Hill testified to Congress about sexual harassment, women are still dealing with violence and social, political, and economic inequality.

How are powerful female pop icons, such as Beyoncé and Janet Mock, changing the way women talk about strength, community, and sexuality?

Who are the next generation of political and professional leaders an dhow are they reshaping feminism?
