We are pleased to share this podcast interview as two Cuba high school students, Brianna Gorsuch and Caitlin Patterson, interview with the recently retired Carol Davis over the gender gap and how it impacts Rural America; both in the past as well as the present. Carol shares her experience with gender inequality, gender stereotypes and expectations society places on women as a child, as a parent and in the workplace.
We are pleased to share this interview with Dr. Lori Baker-Sperry from Western Illinois University Department of Women Studies. We asked Dr. Baker-Sperry several questions concerning the topic of gender, especially in regards to rural America. This interview prompted us to interview key community leaders to also share their experience with things like gender stereotypes and advice to women growing up in rural America today. Dr. Baker-Sperry provided us with several links to her responses as well that you will find helpful. We hope you enjoy and please contact us with any questions you might have.
