Female erasure with Maya Dillard Smith & Mary Lou Singleton

On this week’s episode of On Contact, Chris Hedges delves into this debate with:
– Mary Lou Singleton, a midwife, nurse practitioner and lifelong women’s liberation activist
– Maya Dillard Smith, a legal scholar who left her position as head of the ACLU of Georgia over President Obama’s directive for public schools to let transgender students use the bathroom of their choice.
