Kathleen Barry is the author of several books, including “Female Sexual Slavery,” which triggered a global movement against sex trafficking, and her latest work, “Unmaking War, Remaking Men: How Empathy Can Reshape our Politics, Our Soldiers and Ourselves.” She spoke with Kate Rafael, host of Women’s Magazine on community radio KPFA in Berkeley, California, about both of these books. This discussion includes details about the Geneva Conventions and examples of how empathy affected men’s behaviors and beliefs during war, or rejecting war.
