GRANITO DE ARENA: GUATEMALA'S JOURNEY TO JUSTICE

Granito is an expression of the indigenous people of Guatemala...none of us can do it alone, each must put in their granito, their tiny grain of sand.  Direct descendants of the ancient Maya, the indigenous of Guatemala make up 40% of the population.  With the help of the U.S. government, as many of 200,000 of them and their supporters, the future leaders of Guatemala, were masacred in the early 1980s. Documentary filmaker Pamela Yates witnessed the genocide and found she had her own granito, evidence to help nail a dictator.

Women, Money and Em(power)ment: Taking Responsibility for Finances; Taking Control of Destiny

Historically, women were not permitted to manage finances. Today, most women feel they lack sufficient knowledge to take personal responsibility for their financial future.  By abdicating financial responsibility to a parent, spouse, or financial planner, women give away their power: power to create the life of their choosing, maintain autonomy in the golden years, and have the resources to change the world through meaningful ventures.

Fri, 04/11/2014

Delphine Criscenzo sat with author and Professor Iris Krasnow to discuss her new book "Sex After... Women Share How Intimacy Changes as Life Changes" just before a book signing event at Powell's Bookstore.

Iris is a prolific author of narrative non-fiction books about women's empowerment. She is the author of Surrendering to Motherhood, the New York bestseller Surrendering to Marriage, Surrendering to Yourself, and I am My Mother's Daughter. Her writing has been featured in many national publications, including Parade, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and AARP The Magazine.

Sex After... is filled with advice in the voices of 150 women, from waitresses to CEOs, ages twenty to eighty-eight. Their stories are raw and prescriptive, describing the challenges that can arise in each phase of a woman's life - from navigating the hooking-up culture in the twenties, to sexuality after pregnancy, midlife malaise, breast cancer, menopause, divorce, widowhood.

Syria is undergoing a crisis, a civil war some call it, but Syria is also having a rape crisis. Jackie Blachman-Forshay is an epidemiologist graduate student at the School of Public Health at Columbia University. She is the lead researcher for Women Media Center's Women Under Siege Project. Her research on sexualized violence in Syria has been highlighted in the Atlantic, the New York Times and has been presented to the United Nations.

Women Under Siege is a journalism project that investigates how rape and other forms of sexualized violence are used as tools in genocides and conflicts throughout the 20th century and into the 21st century. They have created a crowd-sourced map documenting sexualized violence in Syria.
