Rose Aguilar

Rose Aguilar is an American journalist and political blogger from San Francisco, California. Her new book Red Highways: A Liberal's Journey into the Heartland is about a six-month road trip she took to the so-called "red states" to interview people about issues they care about and why they vote the way they do (or not). Along the way, she met pro-choice Republicans, an evangelical conservative bishop who now preaches inclusion in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a woman who changed her politics after running a domestic violence shelter in Jackson, Mississippi, a hunter in Montana who is thinking about leaving the conservation movement to fight for gay rights in Montana, and green Republicans.

Aguilar currently hosts Your Call, a daily public affairs radio show on NPR-affiliate KALW-FM 91.7. Your Call features in-depth conversations about everything from the Iraq war and poverty to the environment and the arts.

Aguilar is a contributor to the book Red State Rebels: Tales of Grassroots Resistance in the Heartland. She also writes for Alternet and offers political analysis for the BBC.

Aguilar sits on the board of the Women's Intercultural Network (WIN), a non-profit organization working to connect girls and women across borders. WIN most recently hosted women's rights activists from Uganda and Afghanistan.

Before joining KALW, Aguilar spent eight years as a reporter with CNET Radio. She reported on technology's impact on society and was the only woman on staff.

Aguilar speaks about the media, women's issues, and politics on panels and at conferences.
