Event Announcement - Moms Who Work: Myth & Reality


How much am I loving the Women's Leadership Initiative at Demos? They're sponsoring a forum on my book on July 26 in NYC (save the date!). But I also love them for highlighting "fresh thinking, research and writing by and about the importance of women's leadership in building a strong democracy and securing economic prosperity." I mean, what's better than that?

If in the area, don't miss their forum this week on Moms Who Work: Myth and Reality

Thurs., June 28, 2007
Program from 12:15-1:45 pm at Demos
220 Fifth Ave, 5th Floor
New York, NY

Here's the deal:

Join Demos
and co-sponsors for a discussion with E.J. Graff on the realities faced by working mothers (and their families) in the U.S. today. Drawing upon her article "The Opt Out Myth" published in the March/April 2007 edition of the Columbia Journalism Review, Graff will dispel myths perpetuated by misleading reporting and media hype, such as the "opt-out revolution" and the "mommy wars"-- and will discuss how those storylines can harm public policy.

Panelists will respond to Graff with research, analysis, and discussion about the real issues facing various groups of working women; how advocates are creating policies to support women and their families; and what more still needs to be done: Carol Jenkins, Women's Media Center; Linda Lisi Juergens, National Association of Mothers' Centers (NAMC); and Lois K. Backon, Families and Work Institute. This event will be moderated by Linda Tarr-Whelan, Distinguished Senior Fellow at Demos.

Co-sponsored by: The Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism at Brandeis University, Women’s Media Center, Families & Work Institute, National Association of Mothers Centers, The Columbia Journalism Review
