Hello, Sue,
=20
"The Motherhood Manifesto" (DVD, 2007, 58 minutes) looks at the
obstacles facing working mothers and families, and the employer and
public policy changes needed to restore work-life balance.=20
=20
http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/mother.html
=20
Moving personal stories combined with humorous animation, expert
commentary and hilarious old film clips tell the tale of what happens to
working mothers and their families in America. See how enlightened
employers and public policy can make paid family leave, flexible working
hours, part-time parity, universal healthcare, excellent childcare,
after-school programs and realistic living wages a reality for American
families. The film is based on the book The Motherhood Manifesto by
Joan Blades and Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner.

"Illustrates the point that, compared with other industrial nations, the
United States is shockingly remiss in providing working conditions
conducive to balancing home and work life...Recommended for public,
school, and academic collections." Mary Laskowski, University of
Illinois Library, Library Journal
=20
"Effectively points out the curious hypocrisy of American politicians
who brag about 'family values' -- holding up stay-at-home motherhood as
best for children -- yet refuse to put pressure on businesses to offer
paid leave or allow federal tax breaks for the working spouse.
Recommended." Video Librarian

This title may already be in your media collection. Let me know if you
need additional copies for Equal Pay Day next year.

Subject: [Videolib] Film on Pay Equity Issues

All,

=20

Our Women's Center and Women's Studies Program are teaming up to
increase awareness of gender pay equity issues by hosting some events
for Equal Pay Day next year. They'd like to host a screening of a film
that deals with pay equity issues. Any suggestions?

=20

Thank you!

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
