Wallflower, shy, anti-social. All negative words we’ve used to describe people who are “introverts.” Our guest – an introvert herself — talks about just what an introvert is, and how they are actually very sociable in the right settings. She also discusses ways in which teachers and others can encourage introverts’ participation in school and in other groups, and how “quiet ones” complement the more gregarious and outgoing extroverts in their lives.
Women have made great strides in our society, but they still lag behind men in pay and promotions to the corner office at work. Many young men, on the other hand, are finding that women are getting a lot of support from employers and advocacy groups while they’re left out in the cold – and sometimes even ridiculed in the media. Our guests talk about these issues and offer suggestions for why they happen and how we can level the playing field for both women and men.
