When doctors discovered that gonorrhea affected all classes of girls back in the late 19th Century, they dismissed any evidence about the transmission of the disease from fathers to daughters, and instead blamed --you guessed it-- women for the spread of the disease. It was poor housekeeping, not daddy dearest, accounting for the STD/ Author Lynn Sacco, assistant professor in the Department of History at the University of Tennessee wrote "Unspeakable: Father - Daughter Incest in American History," to explore the role of medicine and society in detecting and dealing wiht incest historically, and she reseearched how the experts threw scientific knowledge to the winds rather than face the issue of father- daughter incest. Easier to blame the mothers than to face a harsh reality.
Sacco has documented medical history and social attitudes about incest and sex crimes over the last two hundred years and how the problem was ignored in order to sustain an image of the ideal white family and paternal authority.
Prof. Sacco earned degrees in journalism and English from Marquette University, a lwa degree from John Marshall Law School and practiced law for several years in Chicago. She went on to get a doctorate in history from the University of Southern Californie, and has been with the University of Tennessee history department since 2004.
Join us as we talk about the history if incest, medicine, feminism, society and sexuality in America.

Hair is a very sensitive and important subject for black women. Since the dawn of time our hair has held lots of meaning and has been a way for us to express, as well as identify, oursleves. We have been manipulating and playing with our hair for eons. Also, playing with and experimenting with makeup, and our personal style in general. Its what we do. Part of our femininity. At this time, many black men have lots of opinions on how we should dress, wear our hair, whether we should wear makeup or not etc. Do they have valid concern, or do they just seek to control and subjugte us?

Welcome to Women in Wireless Interview Series with Executive Women.
WOMEN IN WIRELESS is a global networking non-profit group of over 12,000 members with the mission to connect, inspire and empower women in mobile and digital.
I'm Liz Horowitz, Co-Chair of the Executive Women’s Initiative with WOMEN IN WIRELESS.
We created this podcast series to hear the stories of exceptional women who've advanced to an executive level in this often male dominated industry and gain inspiration from their journey.
It took more than 100 years to officially recognize women in America, but it’s been well worth the wait. Women have contributed to ALL facets of society, and now make up more than half the population of the country.
And even though we celebrate our accomplishments, trials and tribulations in the US, we also celebrate the value and significance of women ALL over the world. Most importantly those women who toil and untirelessly keep their families together, often making less than a dollar a day. Those women deserve dignity, respect and support from the rest of us.
We’ll also applaud the achievements of our veteran women , including Patricia Odom, who was honored in last week’s Black History Breakfast.
Women…we salute you on today’s program!

So let’s have a heart 2 heart about the story of Eve in the Bible and how she is portrayed. How was the beginning of humanity told in your tribe / family / community? Was Eve a scheming and conveying woman who led mankind down the wrong path? Do you think women suffer with menstrual and childbirth pains because we are evil OR simply because we have completely accepted the hype about our wrongs? IJS…
