Part of Speech by A. HItler, 1935: Today women's battalions were being formed in Marxist countries, and to that one could only reply, “That will never happen here! There are things a man does, and he alone is responsible for them. I would be ashamed to be a (American) man if ever, in the event of war, but a single woman were made to go to the front.” The woman had her own battlefield. With every child to which she gave birth for the nation, she was waging her battle for the nation. The man stands up for the (people) just as woman stands up for the family. A woman's equal rights lie in the fact that she is treated with the high regard she deserves in those areas of life assigned to her by nature.

This episode is the culmination of our series on famous federal court trials in US history. In April of 1967, Muhammad Ali (formerly Cassius Clay) refused to step forward at a draft induction ceremony in Texas. His opposition to serving in Vietnam launched a sequence of trials and appeals that went all the way to the Supreme Court. It's a case about conscientious objection, protest, America's shifting views of the war, and how athletes have the unique role of "soldiers without a weapon."This episode features Winston Bowman from the Federal Judicial Center, and Jeffrey Sammons from the NYU History Department.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 1-6-23. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of January 9 and January 16, 2023. MUSIC – ~12 sec – instrumental. That's part of “Falls of Richmond,” by Timothy Seaman of Williamsburg, Va. The falls on the James River at Richmond are a notable geographicfeature of Virginia's capital city. A relatively short distance from those turbulent sections of the James is one of the city's most notable humanfeatures, the State Capitol building, home of the Virginia General Assembly. This episode is our annual overview of the General Assembly, which this year convenes on January 11 and is scheduled to adjourn on February 25. To start, have a listen to the music for about 30 more seconds, and see if you know the General Assembly connection to the following numbers: 405, 2 and 4, 51 and 47, 21 and 19, and, last, about 163 billion. MUSIC – ~31 sec – instrumental. Here are the answers: This year will be the 405th consecutive sessions of the General Assembly started it as the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1619. House of Delegates members are elected for 2 year terms, and Senate members are elected for 4 year terms. The current House of Delegates has 51 Republicans and 47 Democrats, with two seats to be filled by upcoming special elections. [1-10-23 addition, not in audio: Special elections to fill those House seats were held on January 10, 2023.] The current Senate has 21 Democrats and 19 Republicans. [1-10-23 correction, not in audio: As of December 31, 2022, the Senate had only 18 Republicans, after Sen. Jennifer Kiggans, representing Virginia's 7th Senatorial District, resigned to take a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. A special election to fill that Senate seat was held on January 10, 2023.] And finally, the Commonwealth's current two-year budget is about $163 billion dollars; proposed changes to that budget will be a big part of the work of the 2023 session. Besides the budget, the Assembly typically considers two-to-three thousand other bills and resolutions. In recent years about 150 to 200 of those measures have related to water resources, either directly through impacts on aquatic environments, water supplies, or other water uses, or indirectly through impacts on energy or land uses that, in turn, affect water. The budget also affects water, particularly through funding of natural resource-related departments, such as Conservation and Recreation, Environmental Quality, Wildlife Resources, and the Marine Resources Commission. Action on measures involves sub-committees, full committees, and floor debate. Passed bills go to the governor for approval, veto, or proposed changes, and bills with a governor's veto or proposed changes return to the Assembly for further consideration during a reconvened session in April. All along the way, citizens, interest groups, and other stakeholders vie to have a say through information and opinions. You can join in by following the Assembly's work and by communicating with your local delegate or senator about issues of concern. Tools to help you do so are available online at virginiageneralassembly.gov. Thanks to Timothy Seaman for permission to use this week's music, and we close with about 20 more seconds of “Falls of Richmond.” MUSIC – ~20 sec – instrumental.

This was a time when the federal government investigated, persecuted and fired thousands of LGBTQ+ employees, calling them security risks and threats to the country. In this episode of Civics 101, we'll dive into the origin and timeline of the Lavender Scare, meet the man who pushed back and started a movement, and learn about the ripple effects we're still seeing today.Guests:Historian Dr. Lillian Faderman, author of Woman: The American History of an IdeaProfessor David K.
