The former managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was granted bail yesterday after a grand jury indicted him on charges that he sexually assaulted a hotel housekeeper in New York City. French writer and feminist Natacha Henry tells us why so many French men and women have come to his defense. Also, jury selection is complete for the trial against Tahawwur Hussain Rana, the Chicago businessman accused of helping to plan the 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai. WBEZ’s Tony Arnold and local South Asian journalist Mayank Chhaya tell us what we might expect from the trial. And Worldview film contributor Milos Stehlik checks in one last time from the Cannes Film Festival.
