A Woman's Nation

Working with the Center for American Progress, Maria Shriver has compiled a report on the status of women in America today, namely as our position contrasts to that of women in generations past. I can't say with any certainty that the report or the accompanying Special Report series ("A Woman's Nation") on NBC Nightly News will be worth the time it takes to read and/or watch, but I'm tuning in--6:30pm on NBC here.

Here are some links of interest related to the The Shriver Report: Along with the report are additional essays that look interesting. There's a lot of information on the site, so if you don't have time to sit in front of the computer and read, you can download the full report from the Center for American Progress site. It's 454 pages long, though, so I'm guessing (hoping!) there will be a book version released. The Kindle version will be available tomorrow...

NBC's "A Woman's Nation" site is here: click

The Huffington Post has the mother load of reviews by both men and women. Use the site search to find even more. The comments are worth peeking at, as well. People are pretty worked up. The pros and cons of the feminist movement are rearing their beautiful and alarming heads every day across the nation and this report is bringing both sides into the ring swinging.
