Renowned feminist author Katha Pollitt comes to Santa Fe this Saturday for a presentation on her new book, PRO: Reclaiming Abortion Rights. PRO tackles the way that our society talks about and thinks about abortion, birth control, and sexuality. As Pollitt told Mary-Charlotte Domandi on a recent edition of the Santa Fe Radio Cafe, even 40 years after Roe vs. Wade, our feelings about abortion speak to the unattainable standards to which we hold each other when it comes to sex.

In recent months, a national conversation has been brewing over the unequal treatment people of color receive in America's criminal justice system. According to the national organization Prison Policy Initiative, about nine-percent of all black men in their late 20s are in prison in the United States, and four percent of Latino men of the same age are incarcerated. The rate is just seven-tenths of one-percent for white men. Many of the crimes for which men of color are arrested involve drug abuse or addiction.
