February 2013: Break the Chains: Forty Years After Roe v. Wade

Global Val speaks with Mona Lisa Wallace, a civil rights and environmental justice attorney and president of San Francisco NOW, and Rose Aguilar, host of the daily call-in show Your Call on KALW 91.7.

We discuss the state of women's rights in our country 40 years after the landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States.

We'll also be reporting on Eve Ensler's V-DAY (Feb. 14th) campaign, this year called "One Billion Rising" which encourages people to Strike!Dance!Rise! and demand an end to violence against women around the world. The number is based on a United Nations study showing that 1 in 3 women on our planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.
