Your Call: How has the role of women in media evolved since the 1960's?


On the December 17th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation with author and journalist Gail Sheehy about her new memoir, “Daring: My Passages”. Sheehy blazed a trail into journalism when it was still considered a "man's world".  Today only 15% of opinion pieces are written by women and last year only 64% of bylines and on-camera appearances went to men. So what will it take to change these statistics? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.


Gail Sheehy, award-winning journalist and author of sixteen books. Her newest is “Daring: My Passages”
