#1349 – Let’s Talk About Sex

In this week’s show, we focus on how Latinas think about themselves as sexual beings, and the constraints on their decisions about sex and reproduction. We hear from one woman whose decision to end a pregnancy brings up memories of a history of control of women of color’s fertility. We also examine how changes in funding of public health clinics in Texas have affected the choices of tens of thousands of women in the state. And we tell you the stories of some of the nearly two million people who have been deported during the Obama administration.

This Week’s Captions: Back to School

THIS WEEK’S SHOW:

Latino USA goes back to school, with personal stories from around the country and a check-in on Chicago’s students. Also, we meet the STEM sisters, four recent graduates in environmental science, hear from NPR education correspondent Claudio Sanchez, and teach you a few lessons about immigration.

ABOUT CAPTIONING:

Latino USA, the foremost Latino voice in public media and the longest running Latino-focused program on radio, is the first radio program to commence equal-access distribution via Captioning for Radio. “Research has shown that Latino children have a higher incidence of hearing loss and deafness than other populations,” according to Latino USA’s Anchor & Executive Producer Maria Hinojosa. “When the opportunity to break this sound barrier came to our attention, we were pleased to embrace this new technology developed by NPR Labs and Towson University for the thousands of Latinos with serious hearing loss.”

The International Center for Accessible Radio Technology (ICART), a strategic alliance between NPR and Towson University, is co-directed by Mike Starling of NPR and Ellyn Sheffield of Towson University.

Last May, many of Chicago’s public schools closed. And as the school year starts, some students are forced to cross dangerous gang territory to attend their new schools. We hear from two of them.

Finally, a piece from 1993 asks that perpetual question: how do you identify yourself?

Somos: Who We Are (1993)

As Latinos, our Spanish heritage binds us, but ancestry from far flung corners of the world divides us. In this special piece on identity from 1993, we explore what that unity—and diversity—means.
