The Council of Feminist Thought Takes On Title IX

morningamp:

The Department of Education is investigating 87 schools in various ways for Title IX discrimination when it comes to sexual assault cases. The Council of Feminist Thought convened to talk about the processes that currently exist on campuses to arbitrate these cases and what types of solutions we could see. Something important to keep in mind is that universities and colleges are not beholden to criminal law in their investigations.

morningamp:

"I would argue that the system is working as it is intended to work, does it serve communities that we all care about? No, but is it "working"? Sure. […]Some people can work any system, but if a system is set up so that a significant portion of people will not succeed in it, then those people will not succeed in it, and then we’re talking about exceptional-ism, which is so American." - Dr. Coya Paz on The Morning AMp.

White Males even Dominate Chicago's Improv Comedy Scene. What's the Deal?

morningamp:

Why is the improvisational comedy scene just so white and male in Chicago? Vocalo storyteller Genny Ramos shares the conversations she has had with her friends in the scene, who chalk it up to exposure, culture, and casting control. But the question we’ll try to get to the bottom of in studio is how do we diversify the scene? Or do we just give up on it?

Children of Color Typically Receive Worse Healthcare. What Factors Influence this Fact?

morningamp:

"When people were asking for pain medications overall 27% of white children recieved pain meds, while only 15.8% of black children, 18.9 of latinos, and 7% of kids of other races […] If you’re Asian in the ER watch out." - Molly Adams

Looking at a study published in the October issue of Pediatrics, Molly Adams, Brian Babylon, and Coya Paz ask whether statistics about disparate care received by minors in the ER for stomach pain pointed to racist hospital practices or to disparities between hospitals in low-income areas and how families from different economic backgrounds might ask for more.

Unpaid Interns Look to Judge for Paycheck

vocalooverdrive:

“Having an intern isn’t supposed to be a benefit for your company.[…]The employer that provides the training derives no immediate advantage from the activity of the intern and, on occasion, it’s operations may actually be impeded.” 

- George Lara, Director of Internships and Mentorships, Chicago Public Media

A recent civil action lawsuit has been filed against Fox Searchlight by two unpaid production interns claiming the work they did for the company was not appropriate for an intern and deserving of compensation. A judge has decided to allow the suit, based on a series of emails that seem to indicate irresponsibility and recognition of fault. Luis Perez and Shantell Jamison sit down with George Lara, the Director of Internships and Mentorships at Chicago Public Media, to help define what an internship is legally meant to be.

The Miss Neo Pageant

vocalooverdrive:

Megan Mercier says the world is built on competition. Women are told that they can essentially be and do whatever their heart desires regardless of their gender, but the hard-hitting reality of competition and that not being totally true sets in.

The creator of the performance along with director Stephanie Shaw join Shantell & Luis in studio to talk about the performance which “smashes the traditional American beauty pageant form with real stories of fully-grown girls stumbling into womanhood.”
