Women in America: Enlightening Womens’ Minds, and Empowering Womens’ Hearts

As women’s history month launches, the White House published a new report — We’ve got a ways to go, baby.  “At all levels of education, women earned about 75 percent of what their male counterparts earned in 2009…women are more likely to be in poverty than men….economic inequities …more acute for women of color.” How shall we change that?

As I read the above post by expert author Judy Bradt, who has been a guest on the PI Window on Business many times including as part of a guest panel discussion regarding the just released White House Report “Women in America: Indicators of Social and Economic Well-Being,” I must admit I was a little taken aback by the numbers.

After all, haven’t the women in modern American society come a long way from the days of Genevieve Clark, and the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920?

Certainly the comment (and he is sincere here) by my fellow combatant from the south on the 49th Parallel Forum Jim Bouchard, that his wife Alex is the power behind the throne – as the show’s moderator she is certainly the voice of reason, one would reasonably assume that the anecdotal reference points in society today would mean that equalization between the sexes has been achieved.  Or has it?

Joining me tonight at 9:00 PM EST to discuss this most recent report on the State of the Union relative to how women fare today both domestically as well as in an increasingly globalized community is Pure Soapbox author and let’s face it a force to be reckoned with Kimberlie Dykeman and, Alexys “Lexy” Thompson, who is the Regional Director for the International Women’s Day Event in the City of Houston on Tuesday, March 8th, 2011.

About Lexy:

“I am humbled to have been asked to lead such a magical and world changing event in the Houston area. When Paula asked me if I would be interested I felt my heart leap for joy. Just early this year I was honored with an award from AWBA (American Women’s Business Association Greesnpoint Chapter) and now a few months later this passion of mine was being unleashed globally. I immediately had a core group of amazing women by my side ready and EXCITED to lead the charge with me. I believe that IT IS OUR TIME and that there has never been a time when our country has needed us more. I encourage us all to take action and BE involved, no more waiting for someone else to create the change you want to see in the world. Together we can shift the whole world! I look forward to meeting many of you and making history will ALL of you.”
