Kurzbeschreibung

Fifty years after President Lyndon B. Johnson called for a War on Poverty and enlisted Sargent Shriver to oversee it, the most important social issue of our day is once again the dire economic straits of millions of Americans. 1 in 3 Americans today live in poverty or teeter on the brink. 70 million are women and the children who depend on them. The fragile economic status of millions of American women is the shameful secret of the modern era—yet these women are also our greatest hope for change, and our nation’s greatest undervalued asset.

The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink asks—and answers—big questions. Why are millions of women financially vulnerable when others have made such great progress? Why are millions of women struggling to make ends meet even though they are hard at work? What is it about our nation—government, business, family, and even women themselves—that drives women to the financial brink? And what is at stake?

To answer these questions, we examined in detail three major cultural and ecoomic changes over the past 50 years:

  • Women work more outside the home, but still earn less than men.
  • Women lead more families on their own.
  • Women today need higher education to enter the middle class.

To forge a path forward that recognizes this reality, The Shriver Report brought together a power packed roster of big thinkers and talented contributors, including Hillary Clinton, Anne-Marie Slaughter and Lebron James, and challenged them to collaborate with us to develop fresh thinking around practical solutions. This report’s unique combination of academic research, personal reflections, authentic photojournalism, groundbreaking poll results, front line workers, and box office celebrities, is all focused on a single issue of national importance: women and the economy. In The Shriver Report, Davos meets Main Street.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

Maria Shriver is a mother of four, a Peabody and Emmy Award-winning journalist and producer, a six-time New York Times best-selling author, and an NBC News Special Anchor covering the shifting roles, emerging power and evolving needs of women in modern life. Since 2009, Shriver has produced a groundbreaking series of Shriver reports that chronicle and explore seismic shifts in the American culture and society affecting women today. Shriver was California’s first lady from 2003 to 2010 and, during that time, she spearheaded what became the nation’s premier forum for women, The Women’s Conference.

The Center for American Progress is an independent nonpartisan educational institute dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action. CAP develops new, progressive policy ideas, challenges the media to cover the issues that truly matter, and shapes the national debate. Founded in 2003 by John Podesta to provide long-term leadership and support to the progressive movement, CAP is headed by Neera Tanden and based in Washington, DC.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An important study - a pleasure to read 13. Januar 2014
Von FNOPL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Maria Shriver's latest report is over 400 fascinating pages. I enjoyed reading every essay, from the academic works to the personal narratives of women struggling in our current economy. I was surprised and moved by Lebron James' contribution on being raised by a single mother. And Professor Kathryn Edin's chapter taking readers into the minds and hearts of low-income fathers was truly eye-opening. If Lean In may help some women personally, this book may help a lot of women by providing an understanding of the struggles and solutions for women on the brink of poverty.

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent book for men too 13. Januar 2014
Von Martin Edmund Royle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Started reading The Shriver Report after seeing Maria Shriver on Meet the Press yesterday. Eye-opening statistics about the modern American family. A great resource for parents to understand what our young women will face in the future. Far from a dry read - The Shriver Report has data, statistics, inspiration, Beyonce and Lebron. Worth the time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Needed Gamechanger 13. Januar 2014
Von Selena Rezvani - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This thorough, future-focused report asks a critical but often ignored question, "How could we have evolved so much in the past 50 years, yet at the same time be experiencing historical economic immobility--especially for women?" The report looks at why 1 in 3 women are driven to the financial brink and challenges men and women to stop idly accepting that fact. Perhaps closest to my heart--because of my consulting work--is the section on workplaces. If neither men nor women are happy with their current work/family balance, why don't we do a better job of putting women, men, and parents at the heart of workplace policies? The report contains too much smart research to name, and comes to life with the vignettes from real life men and women leaders. Brava, Maria Shriver and team!

The impressive collection of authors and essayists in this Shriver Report keeps each new section interesting, and puts a face on the issues discussed. With contributors ranging from Beyonce to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to real women living on the brink, this text is both informative and enjoyable.

I love using The Shriver Report in my classes because it is packed with the latest data, it includes beautifully illustrative graphics and pictures, and it includes compelling personal stories that bring the data to life. It is ideal to use in the classroom because it covers so many topics.
