Broken Patterns Author Anita Harris on PBS: To The Contrary
Had fifteen seconds of fame on Friday, March 21, when I commented on Sheryl Sandberg’s Ban Bossy Campaign for PBS’s To the Contrary.
My interview (well, sound bite) introduced a segment about Sheryl Sandberg’s campaign to expunge the “b” word (that would be “bossy”) from our vocabulary. I’d posted blogs here and on New Cambridge Observer blog questioning whether the campaign will promote or harm good leadership among girls.
The program also covered the Obamacare birth control mandate. Guests included Congresswomen Blanche Lincoln, Carol Moseley Braun, Connie Morella, Barbara Kennelly and Mary Bono.
The panelists were Amy Siskind, The New Agenda; Kay Coles James, *resident, Gloucester Institute; Avis Jones DeWeever, NPR host, and Rina Shah, Republican strategist.
–Anita M. Harris (Not to be confused with the Anita Harris who wrote two of the books used to illustrate my introduction).
Anita Harris is the author of Broken Patterns, Professional Women and the Quest for a New Feminine Identity and Managing Director of the Harris Communications Group, a PR and marketing firm locaed in Cambridge, MA. She blogs here and at New Cambridge Observer.
