New Healthcare Bill and Women’s Voices

Today Mitch Jeserich discusses Trump’s new “wonderful” Healthcare Bill to replace Obamacare, with Edwin Park, Vice President for Health Policy at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Then, three clips from three women’s speeches that changed the world:

 

Angela Davis, speech at the Frontline Feminisms Conference in 1997, using the prison system as an example of why women should advocate for paradigm change not equal rights.

Arundhati Roy, Chalmers Johnson March, 2007 from KALW, Talking about women at the center of revolutionary struggle, and the grooming of certain minorities for positions of power in order to be able to deny racism.

Rosa Parks, interview about moment of resistance with Sidney Rogers of KPFA in West Oakland in 1956.
