A racist is a person who believes in the superiority or inferiority of another race.

While many point to the President Elect's immigration policies as being racially motivated, others point to the diversity of his business and campaign staff.

‘Women in Power: What Do We Fear?’ Saturday 29th October 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance


There have been only 46 women senators in the whole history of US government since 1789. Women have been running for president for close to 150 years without success. Do you think about the lack of women in positions of power - in government and throughout society? Is it something that concerns you?
Not all men fear women in positions of power but patently the fear is out there and has held women back. It seems worth exploring what this fear could be about. Paul B Farrell writing for Marketwatch states “Gender research in behavioral economics, neuroscience and brain psychology confirm that women do think, feel, see differently, they value the economy and the world differently, it’s a huge difference. Psychologically, women naturally think long term, see into the future. The male brain is programmed to think short-term.” Men and women are different. Is it possible men fear that women in power will only represent the needs of women? (Maybe because that is largely what men have done all the centuries they’ve been in power?)
Elie Mystal writing for Above The Law has come up (somewhat tongue in cheek) with the three most obvious reasons why men should fear women in charge.1. Performance Review Would Take 15 Hours And Peer Into Your Soul, 2. You Won’t Even Know Where To Look, and 3. Staffing Decisions Based On Cooperation Instead Of Conflict. Is increased emotional engagement something men fear if women are in charge? Do men feel more comfortable when they control the sexual dynamics and can eliminate them in certain situations where they deem them distracting by excluding women or keeping them subordinate? Do men feel more comfortable competing in the work place and therefore fear the possibly more collaborative style of a woman leader?

What do you think? Ruth Copland gets the views of people on the street for our Out and About feature. Join us on Saturday 8-9 PM! For more info on the show and to hear past shows visit www.itsaquestionofbalance.com

BAFTA Breakthrough Brit Tess Morris on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland

As her special guest from the arts Ruth Copland interviews Tess Morris, screenwriter of the wonderful 2015 romantic comedy film MAN UP, starring Simon Pegg and Lake Bell and BAFTA 2015 Breakthrough Brit (broadcast 17th September). If you missed this show you can listen at http://www.itsaquestionofbalance.com/topic-women-in-power-what-do-we-fear-arts-guest-tess-morris-screenwriter-2015-bafta-breakthrough-brit/. Tess has been writing since she could walk (not 100% true) and her first words were ‘Elvis is the King!’ (100% true). Her latest screenplay, the romantic comedy MAN UP, made the 2011 Brit List, was picked up by Big Talk Pictures, co-produced by Studio Canal and BBC Films and released in 2015 directed by Ben Palmer and starring Simon Pegg and Lake Bell. Tess is currently writing original screenplay SECRET SANTA for Big Talk/Studio Canal and TEXTBOOK BEHAVIOUR for Big Talk/BBC Films. She is also doing a rewrite on a feature for Sony in the US.
In 1997, she won the Lloyds Bank/Channel Four Film Challenge for her short film BEER GOGGLES, and in 2008 she was chosen for the BFI/Skillset Think Shoot Distribute Scheme for emerging talent in the British Film Industry, which further proves the theory that there is no such thing as an overnight success.
