Cultural Misogyny

Posted by: whroadmin 6/4/2014 7:44 PM

“I will attack the very girls who represent everything I hate in the female gender." This chilling phrase is just one of many found in the 137-page manifesto of Elliot Rodger, detailing his hate for women and his murderous plans for his roommates, family and the women of UC Santa Barbara.  On today's HearSay we'll take a closer look at the extreme misogyny at the heart of Rodger's rampage.

Scheduled Guests:

Dr. Anthony Napoleon - Author, Awakening Beauty: An Illustrated Look at Mankind’s Love and Hatred of Beauty 

Janine Latus - Author, If I Am Missing or Dead: A Sister's Story of Love, Murder, and Liberation
