Some new reflections on International Women's Day (March 8) set the stage for an "encore performance" (that is, a rerun) of an installment from September 2009. It features a brief but shrewd and funny speech by Dr. Joycelyn Elders on human sexuality, women's health, women's rights, and warped national priorities.
Elders was U.S. Surgeon General until President Clinton fired her for her vocal advocacy of liberal and sane public-health policies. (She opposed both "abstinence-based sex education" and the Drug War.)
Plus an introductory monologue by K.D., a relevant song by The Foremen, and part of another by James McMurtry.
Thanks to the National Radio Project for the Elders talk.
