Feminist Fridays #35: Project Monma - It Takes A Village to Stop Violence Against Women

The United Nations has committed to achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls everywhere by 2030. Grand ideals - and though we've come so far, there's still so much left to do. Johanna Higgs, an anthropologist and women's rights activist, is working towards those goals through Project MonMa, an advocacy group which she founded. She joins us to discuss her efforts to get the world to speak out against the endemic levels of daily harassment that women around the world face.
