Women in the U.S. have come some way toward gender equality in the 90 years since they won the right to vote. New laws have helped women in many areas of life-- but some areas remain out of reach of the law. Religion is one. In this program, Angela Bonavoglia, author of several books on Catholics and the Church, will talk about what she calls "Gender Apartheid" within the Catholic Church and Reverend Rebecca Turner will discuss what's changed for women and what hasn't in the Southern Baptist church in which she was raised.
