May 25, 2011 – Hour 2

Last week, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, chief of the International Monetary Fund, was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting his Guinean hotel maid in New York City. In this hour we explore how this allegation ties into the economically abusive nature of the IMF, and what it means for the perception of sexual assault around the world.
