Delphine DeMore & Dr. David Hillman
oin us tonight as I chat with Delphine DeMore to discuss Women's Empowerment for the 21st Century, including such topics such as why women still don't feel equal, how the myth of "sameness" limits both genders, the devaluation of female strengths, the necessity of mothering skills for morality, culture, emotional maturity and relationships and the strengths of women that facilitate change - and much, much more - including an examination of Gloria Steinam's call for a "Revolution from Within." Crossing the threshold into the second half of the show, returning is Dr. David Hillman, a show favorite, discussing how contemporary people misunderstand the gods and how their relationship with the gods is different than people in ancient times - Part 1. Conversation resumes on Valentine's Day 2013.
