Guest Host: Steve Roberts

Balancing work and family is a headache for all parents, but women often feel like they’re taking on the bulk of the burden. Two university professors discuss the root of these gender roles and talk about whether our society can change to make life better for men, women, and especially for children.

Guests

  • Joan Williams author of "Unbending Gender" (Oxford University Press) and co-director of the Gender, Work & Family Project at American University Washington College of Law
  • Deborah Tannen professor of linguistics at Georgetown University and author of many books, including "The Argument Culture" and most recently, "You Were Always Mom's Favorite."
