2. Dr. Harriet Fraad discusses the implications of deeper systemic problems with male superiority and capitalism in the case of Jeffrey Epstein and his sex-trafficking of young girls to the rich and powerful including presidents and princes.Dr. Fraad looks at the middle class beginnings of Jeffrey Epstein and his ascent to a life of luxury with his ability to ingratiate himself to make ever higher and more lucrative connections. Dr. Fraad describes the raising of males in our strongly matriarchal led households and in our schools that tends to limit the emotional expression of boys to anger, sports and sex, while denying the boys needs for tenderness, comfort, emotional care and empathy that cannot be admitted for fear of shame of failure to live up to the learned identity of an American male.  Dr. Fraad believes paid paternity leaves and free daycare would help the families better address the nurturing of boys and allow the tender expressions of males as fathers.

About our Guest:   Dr. Harriet Fraad is a mental health Counselor and Hypnotherapist in private practice in New York City. She speaks regularly and writes about the intersecting crises in US relationships personal life, politics and economics. She was a founding member of the Second Wave women’s movement and has remained an activist for her entire life. She appears regularly on the radio for Economic Update, The Julianna Forlano Morning show, MK Mendoza, and Women’s Spaces.

Accomplishments this Week in Women’s History:

Frances Perkins: (born Fannie Coralie Perkins; April 10, 1880[1][2] – May 14, 1965) was an American sociologist and workers-rights advocate who served as the U.S. Secretary of Labor from 1933 to 1945, the longest serving in that position, and the first woman appointed to the U.S. Cabinet. As a loyal supporter of her friend, Franklin D. Roosevelt, she helped pull the labor movement into the New Deal coalition. She and Interior Secretary Harold L. Ickes were the only original members of the Roosevelt cabinet to remain in office for his entire presidency.
During her term as Secretary of Labor, Perkins executed many aspects of the New Deal, including the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Public Works Administration and its successor the Federal Works Agency, and the labor portion of the National Industrial Recovery Act. With the Social Security Act she established unemployment benefits, pensions for the many uncovered elderly Americans, and welfare for the poorest Americans. She pushed to reduce workplace accidents and helped craft laws against child labor. Through the Fair Labor Standards Act, she established the first minimum wage and overtime laws for American workers, and defined the standard forty-hour work week. She formed governmental policy for working with labor unions and helped to alleviate strikes by way of the United States Conciliation Service. Perkins dealt with many labor questions during World War II, when skilled labor was vital and women were moving into formerly male jobs.

3. Megan Kaun and 4. Julie Royas share their journies into becoming active in the elimination of toxic synthetic pesticides, a Toxic Free Future for Sonoma County. Both are mothers with children. Julie noticed how inflamed her son’s skin became with exposure to the use of Roundup glyphosate herbicide at his elementary school and protecting him gives her the strength to attend public hearings and lobby local politicians for policy changes in the use of the pesticides in public places like schools, parks and along the creeks. The latest victory in the county was persuading the Cotati City Council to vote to ban the use of glyphosates like in Roundup in their public spaces. Coming up on Tuesday August 27, 2019 the Rohnert Park City Council will take up discussion of toxic-free landscaping and residents of the county are invited to attend and voice their opposition to toxic pesticide use in the city on public lands.

About our Guest: Julie Royes is a military wife and mother of two. She decided to do something about synthetic pesticide use in public spaces after her doctor tied her son’s mysterious skin rashes to low dose exposure to the synthetic pesticides (glyphosate and others) being used near her home. Julie started the Toxic Free Future campaign in Rohnert Park in 2018 to create more safe public spaces in Sonoma County.

About our Guest: Megan Kaun is an environmental engineer who has taken an unexpected journey into the world of pesticides. An experience at her local park regarding weed killer application near a children’s playground inspired Megan to work toward eliminating unnecessary synthetic pesticide use in Sonoma County. Through her work as a private citizen-scientist and as a board member of Sonoma County Conservation Action (SCCA) and Santa Rosa Water (former), she has helped bring enlightened landscape policies to numerous municipal agencies and schools. Megan holds engineering degrees from Stanford and Northwestern Universities.

Our Featured Guests

  1. 1. Marnie Wroth and 2. Susan Lamont talk about the federal civil trial in which Marnie and her husband Chris Wroth were plaintiffs whose rights were violated by the deliberate indifference of the Rohnert Park Police Department with lack of proper training of police officers involved in the arrest and killing of their son Branch Wroth who called 911 for help with a medical emergency due to adverse drug reacton.  Susan Lamont witnessed with daily attendance at the trial and reports how the jury agreed with the parents of Branch Wroth and the evidence they presented, including police video cam recordings, to hold the Rohnert Park Police Department accountable with an award to the Wroths of $4 million. Marnie reminds us that her son was also a father and brother and friend of many and all of these relations were deeply hurt  traumatized by the killing of Branch Wroth by the police. The Wroth family was represented by attorney Izaak Schwaiger. This is a tragic and heartfelt look into the need for better understanding and training on community health issues by the police and their 911 responses.

 

About our Guest:   Marnie Wroth was a longtime activist and resident in Sonoma County, most recently in the effort to bring justice for Andy Lopez. She is the mother of Branch Wroth, who was killed by Rohnert Park Public Safety officers two years ago. In June, she and her husband Chris won their lawsuit against the City of Rohnert Park and were awarded $4 million. Marnie and Chris moved out of the county after their son’s death.

About our Guest: Susan Lamont is a writer, photographer, and landscape designer who is also an activist primarily around issues of law enforcement accountability, income inequality and peace. She was active at the Peace & Justice Center of Sonoma County for fifteen years, both as a board member and as Center Coordinator.
