Interview with Rosalind Barnett about the new “soft war” on women Sunday at 6 p.m.

Roz BarnettTune into WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews Rosalind Barnett.

With more women than men attending college, women occupying high-profile CEO positions—think General Motors and Lean In, and a woman leading the early field of presidential candidates, it may seem like the gender war has been fought, and won.  Nonsense, says this week’s guest on The Campbell Conversations.  Rosalind Barnett is a senior scientist at Brandeis University’s Women’s Studies Research Center, and the co-author, with Caryl Rivers, of The New Soft War on Women:  How the Myth of Female Ascendance Is Hurting Women, Men—and Our Economy.

Listen in to the last edition of Campbell Conversations with  Incoming Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud


The Campbell Conversations

Sundays at 6:00 p.m. with Grant Reeher

Every week Grant Reeher, Director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University, leads a conversation with a notable guest. Guests include people from central New York – writers, politicians, activists, public officials, and business professionals whose work affects the public life of the community – as well as nationally-prominent figures visiting the region to talk about their work.

The Campbell Conversations are longer interviews which encourage the character of the interviewee to be exposed. This allows you to learn more about the person, how they got to where they are, and where they plan to go. Grant attempts to go beyond the usual press conference questions and sound bites, which usually accompany a discussion about his guests.

Podcasts of the show are available via iTunes.

If you have any questions about an episode or any comments for Grant, feel free to contact him by email at at your convenience.

Support for the The Campbell Conversations series on WRVO is provided by The Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship.
