this episode is no longer available

Memorial Day is a holiday dedicated to the men who gave their lives as soldiers for their country. Kathleen Barry, author of Unmaking War, Remaking Men talks to Kate Raphael about how socializing men to hold their own lives expendable promotes violence against women and a collective failure of empathy. Plus we’ll talk to French feminist Judith Ezekiel about the Strauss-Kahn rape case.
