Women’s Magazine – When is a joke not just a joke?

Yana Walton of Women’s Media Center discusses how media treatment of women candidates affects their ability to win and hold office, and how they might have contributed to the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.   And Lisa Dettmer talks to emerging comic Karinda Dobbins about the challenges for women breaking into comedy.   Dobbins will perform tomorrow night at the Marsh with Marga Gomez.
