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?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
