Your Call: Media coverage of women, sexual assault, and reproductive rights
On the October 14th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of gender, sexism, and abortion restrictions in the presidential election.

Join us live at 10am with me, Rose Aguilar and you.
