Through the Eyes of Women: Poetry and Process

It was almost 40 degrees on a Wednesday night.  In the woods above Stafford, California an unknown activist from Arkansas hoisted the last of her supplies up into an ancient redwood under an almost-full moon. 

738 days later, Julia "Butterfly" Hill descended as an environmental icon. 


As the U.S. prepares for Thanksgiving next week, many of us think of the image of happy 'Pilgrims and Indians' coming together for a big feast. But what about the rest of the story -- the historical facts versus the Mayflower myths?

This is a condensed version of a Thursday Night Talk program from November 16, 2017. 

Long-time community diabetes activist, diabetes policy advocate and blogger, mother and wife, Christel Marchand Aprigliano believes that to live optimally with a chronic illness, you have to have support from friends, family and peers who live with the day to day, moment to moment challenge of facing something that never goes away.

On this week's Through The Eyes Of Women, Dr. Corinne Frugoni talks with Victoria Sweet about her new book, "Slow Medicine". 

Over the years that Victoria has been a physician, "healthcare" has replaced medicine, "providers" look at their laptops more than their patients, and costs keep soaring. Yet the remedy that economists and policy makers continue to miss is also miraculously simple. Good medicine takes more than amazing technology; it takes time - time to respond to bodies as well as data, time to arrive at the right diagnosis and the right treatment.


The history of Native and Indigenous people in California is told through many lenses. According to Deborah Miranda—author of the book Bad Indians: A Tribal Memoir, the stories of her people and many others who survived decades of persecution and genocide under colonialism, the gold rush and California missions, have not been told by enough native perspectives.

Through The Eyes of Women: Harnessing Intuition

Can tapping into your intuition change your life? How do we unlock creativity and embrace our full potential? For most of us, it’s easier said than done. Jill Willard says that we all can tap into our intuition in a way that can empower us to be more creative, fulfilled, and reach our potential.


We have the best of intentions. We do. We can declare our love. We can promise to always be there. Sometimes we might even promise to always do the dishes when our partner cooks. And of course, we mean it when we say it.

But are you willing to back that up in writing, partner?

  A trip to Southern Italy in order to solve a mystery of murder involving her great-great-grandmother Vita becomes an account of passion, family, food, and forgiveness for Helene. She captures perfectly the “simultaneous beauty and sadness” of Matera — the instep in the boot of Italy — its midday heat (like “stepping into a pizza oven”), its brutalizing poverty and superstition, its stark, if accidental, symbolism.On her way to the Crypt of the Original Sin, she pauses at the cave dwellings where the poorest of the poor once lived.
