On the third and final night of a compelling discussion, the panelists’ conversation includes recommendations for national action to move women and children out of poverty.
Women are poorer than men in all racial and ethnic groups, and the numbers of women and children that are falling into poverty are growing. What will it take for America to put her women and children first?
Answers to this question and other related issues are examined by Tavis and a diverse all-female panel of thought leaders, opinion makers and influencers.
Guests include: Nely Galán, founder of The Adelante Movement; Dr. Julianne Malveaux, economist and president of Bennett College; Suze Orman, a leading authority on personal finance; Hilda Solis, 25th U.S. Secretary of Labor; Cecilia FireThunder, former president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe; Faye Wattleton, former national president of Planned Parenthood; Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers; and Sheryl WuDunn, Pulitzer Prize–winning writer and co-author of Half the Sky.
