Democracy Now

Democracy Now! (6 am) – June 24, 2009 at 6:00am

We look at the state of affairs for women athletes, with a special focus on entrenched homophobia and transphobia in U.S. women's sports.  We'll hear excerpts from talks by David Zirin, author of People's History of Sports in the United States, and Elizabeth Terzakis, Instructor at Canada College, as well as speak with one of the producers of the extraordinary film "Training Rules" on homophobia in women's college basketball.  Plus Jovelyn's World and more.
Following the broadcast, you can listen to the show and its segments on our blog, kpfawomensmag.blogspot.com
