'Today' March 08, 2010 - International Women's Day

The first International Women's Day was held 99 years ago. The success of the first International Women's Day in 1911 exceeded all expectations. Men stayed at home with their children for a change, and their wives, the captive housewives, went to meetings. Have the expectations and aspirations of that first meeting been met?

We asked the following guests, and invite you to listen to an absolutely delightful hour of chat.

Judith Lorber, Ph.D. Professor Emerita, Graduate Center and Brooklyn College, City University of New York

Lisa Rofel, Professor and Chair, Department of Anthropology, University of California Santa Cruz

Julia Broussard, Country Programme Manager, UNIFEM Project Office in China

Audio: International Women's Day (Hour 1)
