Why We Need to Invest in Family Care – Madeleine Kunin on AARP Radio

Last week, Madeleine M. Kunin was featured on AARP radio.

From AARP.org:

More American women are attending medical and law schools now than ever before. The two-income family is the standard for the modern American family. And the role of women in society has changed drastically for the better. With all of these changes, however, the social support system for working women and their families has improved very little.

Madeleine Kunin, the former governor of Vermont, examines how America has — and has not — progressed in gender equality at home and in the workplace. She also advocates major changes for how we invest in family care, as well as women increasing their role in politics, in her book, The New Feminist Agenda.

 Listen to the show.

Be sure to follow Madeleine on Facebook and Twitter to hear about her upcoming events.
