What We Need to Know Today
I am very disturbed by the front page NYTimes article on young women deciding to choose raising their families over working. First thing, the women's movement was about choice; if a woman want to stay home - ok, but give me a break.
This article was just so snotty, so upper class and so white. It just made me cringe. I'm actually having heart palpitations right now. So basically we're going to have an entire generation of women who are supereducated but choose to use that education in the private sphere rather than the public sphere. There is really something wrong here. Why is this so pervasive? Is it really pervasive? Is it only at Yale and Harvard? What does this say about our culture? Help me out here. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts.
OVEREDUCATED AND UNDEREMPLOYED BY CHOICE
What are the chances of Bush nominating a woman to take Justice O'Connor's seat on the Supreme Court? Here are some potential nominees from women watching the process.
WOMEN FOR SUPREME COURT
Two women, a Palestinian and an Israeli one who lost her sister and one who lost her son to the conflict have joined forces to promote peace. They have met with soldiers about the enter the army and have taken their peace brigade on the road meeting with officials in the UK. Go girls!
