“The Shriver Report: A Woman's Nation Changes Everything,” is a comprehensive study examining a social transformation unfolding right now. For the first time in history, one-half of all U.S. workers are women, and mothers are the primary breadwinners or co-breadwinners in two-thirds of American families.
This multifaceted report – including a comprehensive national poll conducted by The Rockefeller Foundation in partnership with TIME Magazine – looks at the changing face and attitudes of the American worker and how it's impacting our lives as families that no longer conform to the traditional paradigm, where men work outside the home and women are stay-at-home homemakers.
This report contemplates what a new America should look like after we finally embrace this important new dynamic and address the challenges not as ‘women’s issues’ but as fundamental issues important to the livelihood and well being of both men and women.
Sunday's "Meet the Press" will kick off NBC's week of programming that addresses the changing roles of women. To read more about The Shriver Report just click on this link.http://www.awomansnation.com/
