Monday on Lake Effect: Women's March on Washington, 'Many Faces One Humanity,' Quinceañeras

Monday on Lake Effect:

Producer Joy Powers reports from the Women’s March on Washington, and introduces us to some Wisconsinites who made the trip. Then, a Milwaukee project celebrates what all of us have in common. Plus, we learn about a Milwaukee spin on a traditional Latin-American rite of passage and we hear an intriguing tale of the remote south Pacific from writer Simon Winchester.
