To The Contrary
Panelists first discussed why George W. Bush is leading the polls among women for the 2000 presidential election despite women's previous tendency to vote Democratic. They predicted what this election's biggest issues for women will be, including education, health care and family values. In the second segment, they discussed whether school officials are overreacting to the Columbine incident by suspending students for their clothing, hair color and expression techniques or whether schools should resort to uniforms. Following a background interview with feminist writer Germaine Greer on her recent book, "The Whole Woman," which details women's quest for the impossible, in which she says women are trying to accomplish too much in today's world and that they need to prioritize and voice their true concerns, the panel debated whether or not her concerns for women were relevant, whether she was over-exaggerating the problems women now face and whether feminism is in its infancy.
