To The Contrary
In this episode, panelists discussed The Family and Medical Leave Act following recent efforts made to expand the coverage of the bill, which provides employees permission to take extended unpaid leave for family or health reasons. They discussed whether or not it is likely to pass, and how it will affect families covered by it. Other topics discussed included the growing trend of women Internet users; the reasons behind this; and what this means for women. The program concluded with a conversation with author Cathy Young, who addressed how the ongoing battle of the sexes is deterring women and men from achieving equality. [26 minutes]
