1. Dr. Harriet Fraad, Psychothrerapist, Author,  Feminist


1.   Dr. Harriet Fraad talks of her early involvement in the Women’s Movement in the Sixties and its transformation over 50 years.  The Me,too activism since the recent Harvey Weinstein accusations, bolstered by a sitting President who was called out for his sexual predation during the 2016 Campaign, and engulfing established men in powerful leadership positions in entertainment, major media news, sports and other industries, including churches, prompted Dr. Fraad to write an essay Sexual Assault, Gender and Capitalism, which she discusses with Elaine.  Harriet describes what is fueling the current trend of women to raise children alone, and how boys are raised to be men with very limited avenues of emotional expression like sex and violence, such that the men’s fury of unmet needs are projected onto women rejecting sex.  Harriet encourages cooperation to replace competition, and change top-down corporate structure to co-operatives.
