(14 min) PreventConnect’s David Lee spoke with Amanda Hess who writes The Sexist – a blog for the Washington City Paper about sex and gender.

In this interview, Amanda Hess talks about how her blog deconstructs sexism and rape culture.  Her blogs and reporting recently includes stories on groping, rape myths and an ongoing feature on songs that glorify sexual violence that she calls “Date Rape Anthems.”
