We talk to New York Times op-ed columnist Gail Collins about the Department of Health and Human Services decision Friday to give employers and corporations a reason to deny contraception coverage to their female employees. All they need is to hold a "sincerely held" religious or moral objection to birth control.
This change hurts more than women. President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions's reinterpretation of existing guidelines on religious freedom may also diminish civil rights protections for the LGBT community.
Also this hour: Harvey Weinstein is the latest in a long string of men in Hollywood who think they can buy their way out of their bad behavior. His lawyer, Lisa Bloom, resigned on Saturday. He was fired Sunday afternoon by his company's board of directors after new allegations detailing more bad behavior toward women. We look at powerful men and the Hollywood culture that sustains them.
