To The Contrary
This episode began with a discussion of the issues surrounding President Clinton's grand jury testimony, including whether polls are indicative of the opinions of American women; why the first lady, a proclaimed feminist, has remained by the president's side; ways in which the president is acting guilty; and what America should require of its leaders. Next was a discussion about the decision by a Florida court of appeals to give custody to a stay-at-home dad instead of a working mom. Topics included the cultural tradition of a woman's role in the family; the need to remember the welfare of the children; whether there should be an automatic legal presumption about the role of the mother; and whether there is such a thing as maternal instinct. The program concluded with a segment about the Global Summit of Women in London, which covered women in politics; the need for women to engage in international trade; and the number of small businesses owned and operated by women.
