Pol 341: Videos!

Hello, all.

Here are a couple of videos in lieu of Monday’s class; we’ll (try to) incorporate the issues raised in these vids into class discussions.

The Battle Over Abortion in Northern Ireland (12:56):

Inside Mississippi’s Lone Abortion Clinic (15:40):

Sosan’s story: Domestic violence in Afghanistan (12:32):

How India’s female untouchables are fighting back (16:56)

Laura Carlsen on the progress and peril of women in Latin America (9:24):

The African Woman and Politics, part 4, Naja’atu Mohamed (9:28):

LSE Middle East Centre, Elif Shafak (5:34):

And while these are  NOT required, they’re both worth a look.

The first is a short documentary on Latinas in the US, and gets at, in an everyday way, some of the issues of intersectionality:

Latina Confessions: Documentary Trailer (15:58)
