Thursday Night TalkApril 30 - Half of us – the male half – may not be aware of the fact that women can’t walk down the street without unsolicited remarks being directed at them. Compliments, come-ons and catcalls, or just condescending commands to “smile!” all demand acknowledgement, objectify their target and take a toll on the recipient’s peace of mind. On the next Thursday Night Talk, host Kevin Hoover and guests will discuss the climate of harassment, low-level and otherwise, that women are subjected to, even on the streets of hip and groovy sensitive Arcata. Tune in April 30 at 7 and call in your questions and comments.
KHSU's call-in talk show, Thursday Night Talk has a slate of alternating hosts, each with their own focus. Join the conversation on world and national politics, local affairs, authors and our local economy every Thursday at 7 pm.
