51 Percent (the Women’s Perspective) with Allison Dunne
On this week’s 51%, we’ll speak with a filmmaker who walked the wards of Chinese hospitals to speak with young workers poisoned by the chemicals that went into making our cell phones. We’ll hear about a program to entice women into coding. And, sure, the cookies may be good, but the Girl Scouts want to be known for a lot more than that.
