Conversation: Katha Pollitt on Conservative Feminism

Sarah Palin is busily trying to sell "conservative feminism" to the masses, but her idea of feminism certainly doesn't include reproductive choice or sexual freedom. Meanwhile, even the Pope has decided that it's better for sex workers to use condoms than to risk getting HIV or other sexually transmitted infections. So why does the new Congress include more new members opposed to women's right to control their bodies?

Katha Pollitt, Nation columnist and longtime prochoice activist, joins Grit TV's Laura Flanders in studio for a conversation about the latest on reproductive and sexual justice, Palinism and more.
