Secret life of girls

Today on Your Call: What is the secret life of girls around the world?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Eve Ensler, creator of "The Vagina Monologues," about her new play, “Emotional Creature.”  The play is a celebration of girlhood in a society that often devalues the talents and emotions of girls and women.  So what does it take to empower young girls? And how can we all benefit?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.   It’s Your Call with Hana Baba and you.

They attend an after school art and mindfulness class at Honey Moon Studios.

Women and girls in pop culture and media

Today on Your Call: How should we respond to the sexualization of women and girls in the media?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with the makers of the film, MissRepresentation, a documentary about the increasingly sexualized portrayals of women and girls in popular culture and news media and the continued absence of women in critical leadership roles.   How are these trends affecting our society--especially youth?  How do they impact you or those around you?  And how can we shift them?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
