#11-00 & #12-00 SISTER HELEN PREJEAN: THE DEATH PENALTY IN THE U.S. (Part I: 29:09) (Part II: 29:00) Interview recorded by Carol Boss of KUNM-FM, with the anti-death-penalty activist and author of the book Dead Man Walking. Recorded after Susan Sarandon won an Oscar for portraying Sr. Helen in the film. Prejean tells about her early life and how she was led to work with people on death row, and gives an in-depth analysis of why the United States -- the only developed country that has the death penalty - should stop executing prisoners. She believes that the death penalty hurts everyone and only benefits one category of persons: the politician.
#10-00 DISABILITY RIGHTS IN EL SALVADOR. (28:53) Jean Parker of Disability Radio Worldwide interviews Eileen Giron, a Salvadoran disability rights activist who is taking the issues of women with disability to the women's movement of her country. Giron currently heads a disabled women's pottery collective and she is a member of Disabled Peoples' International (http://www.dpi.org; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
#9-00 PAT BOND'S "MURDER IN THE W.A.C." (28:55) A front-page headline on the New York Times in March, about harassment and murder of gays in the U.S. military, prompted WINGS to reissue this classic. First aired in 1993, Bond's humorous and tragic personal monologue was recorded in performance in 1982. It details events that took place around 1942: the recruitment of lesbians into the Army during the WWII, and the courts martial witch hunt when the war was won. The performance was produced and recorded by Katherine Davenport, and edited by Frieda Werden. The late Pat Bond is most familiar for her appearance in the film "Word Is Out," but she was a longtime professional performer of one-woman shows, including "Gerty Gerty Stein Is Back, Back, Back," and a play about Lorena Hickock (Eleanor Roosevelt's lover). CONTENT ADVISORY: This is a story about dykes. Aside from that, someone may be offended by the words "bitch" and "breast," or a reference to making love with our mouths "down there." The word "shit" was neutered by the editor (twice) as is customary in those U.S. media that can't afford expensive lawyers.
#8-00 G. E. FOOD. (28:48) News of resistance to genetically engineered foodstuffs has been scarce in the United States, but grassroots public forums are helping bypass the mainstream media. Two talks from November 1999 forums are in this program. Dr. Mae Wan Ho is a geneticist and biophysicist, a senior academic at the Open University in Great Britain, and author of the book "Genetic Engineering: Dream or Nightmare?" She addressed a teach-in of the International Forum on Globalization in Seattle, Washington. Her talk was recorded by Maria Gilardin of TUC Radio, San Francisco. Renu Namjoshi, a concerned mother, founded Texas Consumers for Safe Foods. Her address to a forum of the Alliance for Labeling Genetically Altered Foods was recorded in Austin, Texas, by Jenny Clark. Editing for WINGS by Mary O'Grady and Frieda Werden.

#7-00 ABORIGINAL WOMEN vs. NUKE WASTE. (27:45) From Australia's national feminist community radio series "Women on the Line", this unusual program makes use of tapes recorded by university students on a visit to meet the women of the Kupa Piti (aka Coober Pedy) Kungka Tjuda. The aboriginal women explain their reasoning for opposing a nuclear waste dump being planned for siting over their underground water source in the desert. One woman describes the health effects of nuclear testing previously conducted in their area. There is much conversation in the Kugka Tjudas' language with occasional snippets of translation, and long bits of chanting and dancing.
#6-00 ABORIGINAL TENT EMBASSY. (28:33) Traci Hixson interviews Isabel Coe about this oldest protest site in Australia. Coe explains the history and symbolism of the site, and details the troubled relationship between aboriginal people, who have never given up their claim on their traditional lands and countries within Australia, and the colonizers who have craftily made use of laws and abused negotiations to avoid recognizing those prior claims and the people who make them. Coe charges that the Australian government's criticism of human rights violations in China overlooks genocidal treatment of aboriginal people in Australia.
#5-00 BEYOND SEATTLE: TRADE IS A WOMEN'S ISSUE. (28:55) Women from around the world were active in demonstrations and dialogs around the 1999 World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle. Michelle Garcia recorded views of 8 women about the future of trade as a feminist issue.

#3-00 PUBLIC HOUSING USA: AN UHURU PERSPECTIVE. Connie Burton is a public housing resident and community leader who belongs to the National People's Democratic Uhuru Movement in Tampa-St. Petersburg, Florida. In this interview with Norma Bostock, Burton criticizes changes she has seen in public housing policy policy from the Reagan through the Clinton administrations. These include privatization, reduction of numbers of units for the poor, and the "one strike you're out" rule that evicts whole families if one member of the family is just arrested (not convicted) for a crime. Additional research and script by Frieda Werden.
#2-00 CANADA'S BUDGET. In December 1999, the Canadian government called in women from 109 organizations [108 feminist and one anti-feminist] to consult on the year 2000 budget (which takes effect in March). It was the first time in five years the women's movement had been part of budget consultations, the first time since Canada's Liberal Party slid right and eliminated core funding for women's organizations. After the consultation, Frieda Werden of WINGS interviewed participant Fatima Jaffer. Jaffer is a reporter and former editor of Kinesis, Canada's national feminist newspaper produced by women of color. Jaffer described the work and the hopes, the doubts and the conflicts, experienced by women who participated.
#1-00 POLYGAMY IN THE U.S. The Mormon Church has officially renounced polygamy, and it is a felony in the church's stronghold state of Utah. However, thousands of believers in this former Mormon tradition (and in other polygamous creeds like Christian Identity) live this way without prosecution. Tapestry of Polygamy, formed by survivors in 1998, helps people escape polygamous families. Executive Director Vicki Prunty charges polygamous groups create wealth for elites while less-favored wives and children often subsist by welfare fraud. Rowenna Erickson, a Tapestry founder and Board member, says growing up in a polygamous community was like brainwashing. Interview and editing by Mary O'Grady.

#47-99 TROKOSI. [Note: There are some men's voices on this tape.] In 1998, Ghana outlawed a practice traditional in the country's Southeast region: girls being given in slavery to fetish shrines, supposedly to atone for a family member's crime and to prevent the god, or Tro, from killing other members of the family. Julie Dogbadzi [dog-BAHD-zhi], a former Trokosi slave, is one of the people most responsible for the outlawing of Trokosi. Dogbadzi received a Reebok Foundation award in 1999. WINGS asked Ghanaian journalist Lydia Ajono to follow up on what Julie was doing after receiving the award. Ajono also found that shrine priests were not being sent to jail as the law prescribes, but negotiating payments to release the slaves, from International Needs -- the group that received the money from Dogbadzi's Reebok Award. Tape for this program came from UN Radio "Women," the Reebok Foundation, and Lydia Ajono. Producer, Mary O'Grady; Executive Producer, Frieda Werden.

#44-99 IDEAS OF SEX. [Note: This program speaks frankly but not graphically about prostitution and orgasm.] Two previously un-aired interviews from the WINGS archives: Sheila Jeffreys, author of The Idea of Prostitution (Spinifex: Australia, 1997), says prostitution is the expression of an idea that it is all right to use another person as a sexual object. She describes some history and some current controversy around the international movement to abolish prostitution. Elvira Banotti, an Italian presenter at the NGO Forum of the 4th World Conference on Women (Huairou, China, 1995), says that orgasm is important for both health and communication, and that men lose touch with both functions when they learn about sex from pornography and war. She says all sex in which the female is coerced or not ready -- as in prostitution or "conjugal duty"-- is rape. Both interviews by Frieda Werden.
#43-99 SAMIA'S LEGACY IN PAKISTAN. On October 12, 1999, the government of Pakistan was overthrown by a general who promised to end corruption. One indicator of corruption to many was the failure to prosecute or to condemn a so-called "honor killing" of a young woman by her family. The murder took place in a human rights law office where Samia [sah MEE ah] was filing for divorce. In this report by Nafisa Hoodbhoy, Samia's lawyer Hina Jilani gives an eyewitness account and discusses Samia's murder in terms of government, law, and society. We also hear a speech by Nelgis Rahman, convenor of the Karachi Women Peace Committee, who said honor killing is blasphemy against Islam and called for a kind of activists' jihad to bring the government down.
#42-99 RUSSIA AND CHECHNYA -- THE RESOURCE WAR. At the international conference of Women in Black, Ellen Diederich of Germany talks with Mariat Torshkoeva, a former translator for Chechen President Dzovkar Dudayev. Torshkoeva is from Ingusheta, an ethnic region of Chechnya that stayed with Russia when Chechenia declared independence. She and Diederich discuss the origin of the war in a struggle for oil fueled by outside countries, and the economic misery of both Chechenia and Russia today. Torshkoeva calls for technology and jobs to help Russia, but not loans, which she says are always stolen before they reach the people.
#41-99 IS THE POPE CATHOLIC?
LANGUAGE ADVISORY: In the context of the theological view of St. Augustine and St. Aquinas, Manning uses the words "erection" at 8:41 and "penis" at 13.37.
Joanna Manning, a former nun and author of Is the Pope Catholic? A Woman Confronts Her Church (Toronto: Malcolm Lester Books, 1999), says Pope John Paul II favors the elitist Opus Dei, and that the Church under his leadership has backtracked from the Vatican II of the '60s on women's equality and earthly justice for the poor. Manning alleges the Pope's ideas on women are heretical and undermine fundamental teachings of the Church, as well as contributing to violence and discrimination against women. Interview/Editor: Mary O'Grady; Engineer, Frieda Werden.
