On the #RADIO show we talk about the awful push on Twitter for women’s right to vote to end (what!?!) and about the still needed push for equal pay for equal work: next up we cover Trump’s body language during the debate and how to make sure your kids behave responsibly toward all genders; and in the next segment we cover the importance of healthy school lunches and safe water for all kids—and how you can help make that happen; and the last segment covers gun safety and community safety.
