Author Eileen Pollack, one of the first women to get a BS in Physics from Yale, looks at why thirty-five years later, there are still so few US women in science.  Iranian American playwright Torange Yeghezarian discusses her play “444 Days”, in which a former American hostage and one of his captors meet again twenty-five years later in the Bay Area.  And we talk with former Ursuline nuns Carole Ganim and Lucienne O’Keefe about coming to feminism in the convent in the 1960s.  Carole is the author of Being Out of Order: The Prophetic Generation of Nuns and Sisters.
