Mexican Raperas & Latina Scientist
Mexico - Raperas
Murders of women have become so commonplace in Mexico in recent years, the term "femicide" is now firmly embedded in the country's vocabulary. And in most cases families claim authorities don't properly investigate. But women fighting for justice, security and equal rights in Mexico have a new and vocal ally in their cause: female rappers. The budding movement isn't drawing huge crowds but its message is resonating, especially among the younger generation. Correspondent Gerry Hadden reports on the Raperas of Mexico City.
Latina Scientist - Gabriela Gonzalez
Imagine taking a prediction made a hundred years ago by one of the greatest minds of the 20th century and finding the evidence to prove it to be true today. That's what an Argentine-born female physicist did as part of a team of scientists in Louisiana. They discovered the existence of "gravitational waves", one of the concepts Albert Einstein's talk about in his one hundred year old theory of relativity. Since, the team has being showered with worldwide acclaim. There is also near certainty a Nobel Prize is in the future. Our John Zarrella spent time with Gabriela Gonzalez who insists there is more to come.

Guatemala - Trademark Battle
Guatemala is recognized throughout the world for the quality of its intricately handwoven textiles. Mayan women have used them to make blouses known as huipiles that, over hundreds of years, have come to represent an important part of their cultural identity. The weaves have also become popular among contemporary designers who use them to create fashion accessories. But some Mayan women aren't happy about that. Saying their designs are being stolen, they have started a legal battle to trademark their products.
