BILLBOARD – Susan Barnett (Music Out)
Since 1994, the Violence Against Women Act has provided funding and legislation in support of women’s safety. It’s been reauthorized by Congress twice since then – and it’s up for reauthorization again. But this year, Lisalyn Jacobs of Legal Momentum says the political climate is creating hurdles.

Millions of people around the world don’t have enough to eat. Millions of people will see the hit movie The Hunger Games. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the film deals with social issues including poverty, starvation, and the effects of conflict. Hollywood is teaming up with the World Food Programme and WFP’s Bettina Luescher told UN Radio’s Julie Walker why.
