Former Vermont Governor Madeleine Kunin presents her thoughts on the current state of gender politics in America with a focus on professional careers and employment. The author contends that women have gained little support in their professional lives, despite the fact that they comprise 60% of college undergraduates and 50% of medical and law students. Ms. Kunin argues that women’s needs should be better represented in accordance with other countries, which maintain paid family leave, childcare, and the observance of equal pay for the same work performed by male colleagues. Madeleine Kunin responded to questions from members of the audience at Northshire Bookstore in Manchester Center, Vermont. close
