Sept 22 on FM: UN Resolution 1325, Women’s Spa Day & Sexological Bodywork

Hosted by Jennifer DeClue and Melissa Chiprin

October 2010 marks ten years since the passage of UN Security Council resolution 1325 on women, peace and security. Joining us is Lucinda Marshall the Director of the Feminist Peace Network – we will explore the landmark resolution which calls for international security institutions to address the different impacts of conflict on women and men, and to engage women fully in conflict resolution, peace keeping and peace building. Juxtaposed to, the imperative need to stop appropriating women’s bodies as locations for war – as illuminated by the august 9th issue of Time Magazine with a cover picture of a an Afghan woman, asks misleadingly – what will happen to Afghan women if the U.S. withdraws from the country – possibly linked with the classified “CIA Red Cell Special Memorandum: Afghanistan: Sustaining West European Support for the NATO-led Mission-Why Counting on Apathy Might Not Be Enough” found in the Wikileaks 91,000 documents.

Later, Anahuac Soul Productions hosts it’s 2nd annual women’s spa day! Joining us is Ana Saldana the Executive Director of Women’s Spa Day – a social network for women to raise awareness about holistic alternatives to healing and a healthier lifestyle. Providing a unique opportunity for women to learn about their visceral connection to mother earth and expound on their communal healing powers. (For more info contact
