Listen Local is Mission Local’s biweekly radio program. We broadcast live online at every other Thursday morning from 9:30 to 10:00.

International Women’s Day is coming up and March is Women’s History Month, so Listen Local invited Laura Pereyra, on the Board of the Women’s Building, to talk about why we need the Women’s Building, why we need feminism, and the role of women in tech – a hot topic since Susan Fowler’s bombshell blog post landed Uber, yet again, in hot water.

Also in this podcast: The Women’s Building is hosting Gloria Steinem in conversation with Lateefah Simon at the Brava Theater Center on Monday morning – details here.
