Ashley Judd, interviewed by Richard Wolinsky on April 25,2011

On Saturday, January 21st, Ashley Judd captivated the crowd at the Women’s March in Washington with her presentation as a “Nasty Woman”. While most people simply know her as an actor in films and television, her real center lies as an activist for health and social justice. Richard Wolinsky had a chance to interview Ashley Judd when she was on tour in 2011 for her memoir, “All That Is Bitter and Sweet,” which deals with her early life and her later work as an activist for population, health and feminist issues.

For those who only know Ashley Judd from her entertainment work, the interview is an eye-opener as she discusses her political work, and specifically issues involving sexual slavery, AIDS and other health and social issues in Africa and Asia.
