Today on Worldview, Alison Cuddy fills in for Jerome McDonnell. The Supreme Court hearings on healthcare legislation have wrapped up but it’s still unclear how the court will rule. As it stands, women still pay more for coverage than men. But the new health care law would prohibit this. Sharon Green, program developer for the Institute for Womens Health Research at Northwestern University, tells Worldview about the challenges women face in getting good, affordable, health care. Also, director Claude Lanzmann was a French resistance fighter and a lover of Simone de Beauvoir. He’s best known for his epic nine-hour documentary Shoah, which is considered one of the most important oral records of those who survived the Holocaust.  Lanzmann’s memoir has just been published in the United States. Worldview film contributor Milos Stehlik and Patricia Erens, professor of film studies at Dominican University, discuss the man and his movies. And, this week's Weekend Passport takes listeners to the Congo. Learn about events around the city that focus on Congolese culture and politics.
