Weekend WH: Men Feminists & Professor Angela Davis

December 6th, 2014

Episode 77 of 985 episodes

The celebrated civil rights activist Professor Angela Davis on what it's like to go from being on the FBI's ten most wanted list to a place in the 100 'cool' American's exhibition in Washington earlier this year. We discuss the link between hormones and mental health. The TV series Little House on the Prairie was based on the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder. We look at the continuing enduring appeal of her original books. We hear about the campaign to stop parents who have abused their children from continuing to disrupt their lives and from a woman whose daughters were abused by their father and despite being convicted of the offence still fought for access to them. Plus you may not know the name Bevis Shergold but she made a huge contribution to the war effort as well as representing Britain in the 1948 London Olympics. A debate on whether there is a place for men in the feminist movement?
