Feeling confused or overwhelmed by all the recent gendered violence in the news? The shockingly brilliant Eesha Pandit joins Jaclyn to shine some much-needed clarity on the realities behind the headlines, from Delhi to Steubenville and far beyond. We break down silos, and talk “innocence,” rehabilitation, what matters and doesn’t about “cultural differences,” and the importance of the right question. Then we confess our failures around even understanding what “self-care” means, and punt to Loretta Ross.
