From Women in the Underworld to Women in the Movies

4 segments
Today, we hear about the rise and fall of a China-to-New York human smuggling ring run by an unlikely crime boss—a middle-aged grandmother known as Sister Ping. Then, we’ll look at the Off-Broadway production of the new musical "The Tin Pan Alley Rag." Law scholar and bestselling author Stephen Carter on his latest thriller, Jericho's Fall. Plus, Barbara Ehrenreich and Molly Haskell look at how women in the workplace have been portrayed in movies on our latest installment of our Projections series.
