FROM Elizabeth Marquardt
Has the Movement for Women's Equality Hit a Wall? Fifty years ago, Betty Friedan jump-started the Women's Movement, and the number of women joining the workforce increased for the next 30 years. But toward the end of the 90's, that number began to decline, partly because workplace requirements increased without becoming more flexible. Now, among industrial nations, the US is dead last in accommodating families with mothers and fathers who both want to work. Is this why America's birthrate is going down? Is it time for workplace practices to catch up with worker's ideals?
Rhetoric and brinksmanship on the Korean Peninsula For 25 years, the US has viewed North Korea's nuclear program with increasing alarm. Now President Trump says this country has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what he's actually doing… and what might come next.
Will the march for science politicize objective research? Protesters are gathering all over the country for tomorrow's Earth Day March for Science. Since President Trump has proposed massive cuts in basic scientific research, will the movement be perceived as partisan politics — whether scientists themselves like it or not?
Nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula slowly coming to a head North Korea did not conduct a nuclear test this weekend, but it did show apparent progress in developing a missile that that could strike the United States. The Trump Administration says it has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what that might -- or might not -- mean for North Korea, China and the prospects for diplomacy.
