Stories That Push for Change on The World for 5-30

We start today's show with stories that have shocked, but also sparked a push for change.

In both Pakistan and India brutal killings of young girls have horrified the globe. 

In Pakistan, a woman was killed for marrying a man of her choice. And in India, two teenage girls were brutally killed, after allegedly being gang-raped.  In both cases, the killings have generated outrage in certain sectors of society. We'll hear more about that, and about ingrained societal attitudes.

But we'll also hear how people are pushing back in all sorts of ways, including a Bollywood film that might just surprise you. 

And finally, an anonymous tweeter in San Francisco has sparked a trend that's starting to take off worldwide - the Twitter treasure hunt for cash.  The masked tweeter has been hiding money at sites across San Francisco and leaving clues on Twitter. Now, dozens of similar clues and @HiddenCash accounts have sprung up from Nigeria and India to the Netherlands and the UK.
