Cindy brings us two very different guests. First up is Chelsea Byers, a young Code Pink Intern who was sexually assaulted at AIPAC conference when she tried protesting Netanyahu's speech at the gala. Chelsea says the sexual assault by an AIPAC member was an attempt to dampen her spirits. She said there was an organized response of violence there [ready] to squelch protests. Fortunately, Chelsea has recovered (as much as one can "recover" from such deep personal violation) and is continuing her University education, where she's majoring in Political Science and Women's Studies. Cindy's second guest is Kathleen Barry, Feminist and Professor Emerita from Penn State University. Her new book is UNMAKING WAR, REMAKING MEN: How empathy can reshape our politics, our soldiers and ourselves. Dr. Barry focuses on the masculinity of war and the social expectations placed on boys. Introducing new concepts such as core masculinity and expendable lives, this book exposes how masculinity and the military prepare men for killing and introduces new approaches to world peace and a new masculinity that is already in the making. We can change socialization within our society to reduce the agression and violence which war demands!)
