How Secret Should California's Gang Database Be?

Hosted by

Some 200,000 Californians are on a database that tracks suspected gang members. Police don’t tell them, but prospective employers, landlords or school officials often find out. A new law says the parents or guardians of minor children have to be notified in case there’s a mistake or so they can intervene. Is that enough to protect the rights of people wrongly listed for being in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Also, from Silicon Valley to Venice Beach, women are missing from the top tiers of established tech firms and startups. Twitter—which is about to go public—is a prime example.
