Girl Talking today with guest host Vanessa Benton aka Miss V while Shana is exploring her way through Italy. Miss V, a dancer, choreographer, teacher and all around wise woman who spreads love with her every move shares about her background and how she got into dance and how it helped her with her self esteem.

Theresa and Miss V are joined by special guests, Mariel Fiori and Hillary Harvey.

The four of us discussed various issues such as how and why they do journalism, being a woman in a male dominated industry, race and the women's movement, self care and the value and the future of #metoo. These women are rich with experience, wisdom and passion for their work and their communities. Hillary is hosting a "What's Next for #MeToo: a panel of the future of organizing" in Kingston on March 24th. Check it out!
