In this week's Gabfest, Jessica Grose of DoubleX and Nina Rastogi and June Thomas of Slate discuss a new Pew study on gender equality, Jennifer Senior's New York Magazine cover story about why parents hate parenting, and the new Showtime series about lesbians living in Los Angeles, The Real L Word.
The DoubleX Gabfest weekly "coffee talk" endorsements:
Nina Rastogi's pick: George R.R. Martin's fantasy saga, A Song of Ice and Fire. The first book in the series: A Game of Thrones. According to Nina, it's the perfect beach read and has strong female characters.
June Thomas's pick: The MoMA exhibit of Lee Bountecou's work: All Freedom in Every Sense. The exhibit is presented in conjunction with the publication of Modern Women: Women Artists at the Museum of Modern Art.
