This week we discuss the story of the living son of a Virginia slave, and what his story might mean for us today. And, I speak with Professor Kristen Hourigan of the California State University-Los Angeles about her recent paper titled “Girls Try, Boys Aim High: Exposing Difference in Implied Ability, Activity, and Agency of Girls Versus Boys in Language on McDonald’s Happy Meal Boxes.” The paper is to be published in the journal Sex Roles, and is sole-authored.

Segment 1 -- Kristen Hourigan on “Girls Try, Boys Aim High: Exposing Difference in Implied Ability, Activity, and Agency of Girls Versus Boys in Language on McDonald's Happy Meal Boxes."

Segment 2 -- Sociological reflections on a living son of a slave.
