Hosted by Josy Catoggio
Josy talks with Feminist Psychologist Dr. Catherine Edelmann, author of /FROM PERSEPHONE TO ATHENA: Patriarchal Oppression of the Feminine Psyche/. Dr. Cat theorizes that patriarchy assaults women on three separate levels of the body, mind, and spirit. Level 1 involves sexual and physical trauma; Level 2 involves mind control and brainwashing; and Level 3 involves the suppression of spiritual practices relevant to the victim — including global forms of Goddess spirituality. Although Dr. Cat focuses primarily on women, her theory can be applied to members of all oppressed groups.
And hear from Lois Herr – congressional candidate in Pennsylvania’s 16th district – about the enormous amount of work that must be done to clean up the financial and military disasters of the Bush era, to put the country on a path toward widely-shared prosperity, to extend health care to all Americans, to address our energy future and global warming and to rebuild our stature in the world. Ms Herr is running against extreme right-wing incumbent Joe Pitts who is connected to The fundamentalist group The Family/C Street which has operated secretively with the help of influential congressmen and senators who are members of the group to promote their anti-gay, anti-abortion, pro-free-market ideas in America and other parts of the world.
