Womens Magazine – November 23, 2015

We talk to Nanette Braun from the UN Women about the plans for the 2015 International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against on November 25th. through December 10th .
On the 60th year anniversary of the Montgomery Boycotts, we talk to Professor Jeanne Theoharis,  about her book  “The Rebellious Life of Mrs Rosa Parks” which corrects the misrepresentation of civil rights activist, Rosa Parks, who is often portrayed as a quiet church woman who single-handedly created a movement, a narrative which leaves out Parks life long commitment to activism, how changes happens through collective struggle and not by the actions of one singular person and  reinforces the idea that we live in a post racial society.
