Hour 1:           How are women represented in today’s media and what needs to be done to ensure that the public hears the female point-of-view on important issues in the news and politics? We’ll talk this hour with Julie Burton, President of the Women’s Media Center. Burton will appear at the Gender in Media Forum & Luncheon, hosted by Dallas Women’s Foundation in partnership with the Embrey Family Foundation on Friday, February 8th.

    Julie, great discussion. Welcome to Dallas, host to several girls’ schools, The Hockaday School, Ursland, & DISD Girls’ School founded with Liza Lee, former headmistress at Hockaday. Your message is important: Women hold of 50% of the world. I’m hopeful that when 50% DC & 50% CEOs are women, WA$TE will be minimal, with more time to write, read, & dream.

    The caller from Highland Village was correct in his observation that much of the disparity between men and women in wages and promotions has to do with married women taking time out to give birth to and raise children. Economist Thomas Sowell has found in his research that “Women who remain single earn 91 percent of the income of men who remain single, in the age bracket from 25 to 64 years old.”

    On the other hand, if women were to stop having children at even higher rates than they do currently, then the native American population would be shrinking even faster than it is now. If women were to drop out for only a few days after giving birth and return to work placing their children in daycare, then children would face the psychological harm caused by lack of attachment as psychologist John Bowlby and his colleagues have hypothesized and verified.
