California Women in Office, 'Girls and Sex', and a Manson Family Check-In

There are fewer women in office in California now than there were ten years ago. Is the pipeline broken? And the way we talk to teen girls about sex needs an update according to author Peggy Orenstein. Her new book, Girls and Sex talks frankly about the private lives of girls and young women. Then, Manson Family member Leslie Van Houten was recommended for parole this week. A reporter who covered her trial weighs in on whether Van Houten should get out of jail. Finally, our weekly roundup of new releases including The Jungle Book and Barbershop: The Next Cut.
