Problems of Working Women [electronic resource]

The locale of the program is Dallas, but the experiences are national.

Why Can't a Woman Succeed Like a Man? [electronic resource]

When it comes to corner office clout, women overall have not succeeded in the workplace to the degree that men generally have. In an effort to come to grips with that assessment, this program refuses to shy away from the hard questions as it sheds light on what is seen less as a glass ceiling and more as a glass maze. The central issue is whether, practically speaking, women can, should, or even desire to "have it all" by pursuing a career and raising a family. Drawing on hard science, social science, and pop science, the program considers the realities of gender inequality as it examines matters of sex discrimination in the workplace, business priorities and practices involving maternity leave, the effects of nature and nurture on innate competitiveness, the state of the nuclear fam [...]

Why Can't a Woman Earn as Much as a Man? [electronic resource]

In terms of lifetime earning power, most women earn far less than their male colleagues do. What lies at the root of the pay gap? The answer is neither simple nor definitive, as this program reveals. Research leads hosts Sophie Raworth and Justin Rowlatt - each a parent with young daughters - on a not-so-merry chase to see what the future may hold for their children. Stops along the way include a meeting regarding a class action suit brought by women for lost wages due to unfair salary practices; a group job interview that prompts discussion of a double standard regarding assertiveness in women and men; same-sex and coeducational schools, to see how gender stereotyping influences career choice; and a medical facility where a brain activity assessment is used to seek insights into pot [...]

Wasps and Witches [electronic resource]: Women Pilots of World War II

This fascinating documentary introduces the previously untold story of the forgotten fliers of the Second World War: women pilots from Britain, the United States, Russia, and Germany. These pilots risked everything for their countries and pioneered the way for others at a time when flying was the sole prerogative of men. Because of widespread skepticism, they had to prove their worth and their ability to do a "man's" job. With unique archival footage and present-day interviews with the pilots themselves, this inspiring film offers unique insight into the experiences of the thousands of courageous women who have been "written out" of the history books.

The Problem [electronic resource]: Women at the Top

Do male managers discriminate against women when filling open executive positions-or do women lack the ambition to strive for a spot at the top?

Who's Counting? [electronic resource]: Marilyn Waring on Sex, Lies and Global Economics

Marilyn Waring demystifies the language of economics by defining it as a value system in which all goods and activities are related only by their monetary value. She claims that monetary exchange with results in unpaid work - usually done by women - is unrecognized, and activities that may be environmentally and socially hazardous are regarded as productive. With irony and intelligence, she maps out an alternative economic vision based on the idea that time is the one thing we all have to exchange. Shot in Canada, New Zealand, New York City, the Persian Gulf, and the Philippines, this classic film is an entertaining primer for anyone who suffers from what Waring calls "economics anxiety.

Women and the Corporate Game [electronic resource]

Where prestige as well as income are the goals, women are not only denied equal pay for equal work, but are, much more often than not, denied the opportunity to show what they can do; or, having the opportunity, are unable to perform adequately because of the clubhouse mentality of their male colleagues. The solution for a growing number of women executives: start their own businesses.

The Pay Gap [electronic resource]: Sexism or Something Else?

Warren Farrell protested alongside Gloria Steinem in support of women's rights and was even elected to the board of NOW-three times. But Farrell is also the author of Why Men Earn More: The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap-and What Women Can Do About It. In this brief ABC News segment, John Stossel considers the opposing views of Farrell and Martha Burk, chair of the NCWO and author of Cult of Power: Sex Discrimination in Corporate America and What Can Be Done About It. It's about supply and demand, states Farrell, not sexism: higher compensation generally means bigger sacrifices on the home front-a cost most women are statistically less willing to bear than men.
