    Global 3000 [#410] Creating A Male-Dominant Culture - One Baby at a Time Coming up this week on Global 3000, the magazine on worldwide development and environment from the heart of Europe; March 8 marked International Women's Day, and Global 3000 is devoting an entire show to the topic. In India, Appan TV is training young women and encouraging the younger generation to be more self-reliant. The details:
    MEN IN FEMALE PROFESSIONS AND VICE VERSA - Men tinker, varnish and weld; women wear make-up, teach pre school and care for other people. Those stereotypes may seem antiquated, but typically female and male professions still stubbornly hold their ground. In Germany, for every single male pre school teacher, cosmetician or nurse, there are nine women. Based on a micro census, the Federal Statistical Office has evaluated the professions men and women have chosen in the past twenty years. The conclusion: scarcely anything has changed.
    SURPLUS OF MEN IN ASIA - Many recent studies indicate an alarming imbalance in the gender ratio in several countries. In some regions of China and India, there is an acute lack of women. The reason for the demographic imbalance is the traditional preference for sons and the years of systematic abortion of female fetuses. An interview with Babatunde Osotimehin, Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund.
    INDIA, TRAINING FOR YOUNG GIRLS - In the eastern Indian state of Bihar, young women are writing and recording their own reports for a local television station. Appan TV creates internships for girls and gives a voice to people who are rarely heard in the Indian media.
    CLIMATE PROTECTION IN RWANDA: ELECTRICITY FROM MUSCLE POWER - Bringing light to rural regions that lack electricity is one of the greatest challenges facing developing countries. While extending the power grid will still take several decades in countries such as Rwanda and India, private entrepreneurs are delivering practical solutions. Sameer Hajee founded Nuru Lights, a company that makes LED lamps that run on rechargeable batteries. Despite that, the batteries have to be recharged far from any power supply system. Instead of solar cells, Hajee is using converted bicycles that can charge the batteries in 20 minutes. The LEDs can then be used for up to ten days - a huge step away from climate-damaging kerosene.

    Moyers & Company [#110H] How Big Banks Are Rewriting The Rules of Our Economy Big banks are rewriting the rules of our economy to the exclusive benefit of their own bottom line. But how did our political and financial class shift the benefits of the economy to the very top, while saddling us with greater debt and tearing new holes in the safety net?
    This weekend on an encore episode, Bill Moyers talks with former Citigroup Chairman John Reed and former Senator Byron Dorgan to explore a momentous instance: how the mid-90's merger of Citicorp and Travelers Group - and a friendly Presidential pen - brought down the Glass-Steagall Act, a crucial firewall between banks and investment firms which had protected consumers from financial calamity since the aftermath of the Great Depression. In effect, says Moyers, they put the watchdog to sleep.
    There's no clearer example of the collusion between government and corporate finance than the Citicorp-Travelers merger, which - thanks to the removal of Glass-Steagall - enabled the formation of the financial behemoth known as Citigroup. But even behemoths are vulnerable; when the meltdown hit, the bank cut more than 50,000 jobs, and the taxpayers shelled out more than $45 billion to save it.
    Senator Dorgan tells Moyers, "If you were to rank big mistakes in the history of this country, that was one of the bigger ones because it has set back this country in a very significant way."
    Now, John Reed regrets his role in the affair, and says lifting the Glass Steagall protections was a mistake. Given the 2008 meltdown, he's surprised Wall Street still has so much power over Washington lawmakers. "I'm quite surprised the political establishment would listen to groups that have been so discredited," Reed tells Moyers. "It wasn't that there was one or two or institutions that, you know, got carried away and did stupid things. It was, we all did. And then the whole system came down."
    How Wall Street and Washington got together and stacked the deck against the rest of us.

    Washington Week [#5138H] * Afghan President Hamid Karzai is demanding all foreign troops withdraw from villages and rural areas and return to their bases following the massacre of 16 civilians last weekend, allegedly by an American soldier. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is in Afghanistan trying to repair relations already damaged by two other recent incidents involving US troops - the burning of Qurans and soldiers urinating on Taliban corpses. Martha Raddatz of ABC News will report on the strained US relations and intensified calls for an early withdrawal of all foreign troops from Afghanistan.
    * The recent incidents in Afghanistan along with rising gas prices at home may be beyond President Obama's control, but both could have major implications on his re-election bid. Americans have soured on the war in Afghanistan and with three speeches in two weeks on energy the White House is clearly concerned about gas price hikes. Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics.com will take a closer look at how these issues may create an opening for Republicans this fall.
    * The Republican fight for the party's presidential nomination continues to be dogged. This week Rick Santorum scored double primary victories in Mississippi and Alabama yet Mitt Romney came away with more delegates after wins in Hawaii and American Samoa. Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post will examine what it will take for Santorum to seize greater momentum to overcome front-runner Romney's growing lead in delegates.

    The Lord Is Not On Trial Here Today She was called "that awful woman" by her neighbors, and "that atheist mother" by virtually every newspaper in the country. Her friends stopped returning phone calls rather than risk speaking with her. She was branded a communist, and the Illinois State Legislature nearly outlawed her and her husband from ever teaching at the state university again. She received up to 200 letters a day, some of the writers claiming they would pray for her; many wishing for much worse. All because, in 1945, this young mother of three from a small central Illinois town, Vashti McCollum, would file a historic lawsuit that would forever change the relationship between religion and public schools in America. THE LORD IS NOT ON TRIAL HERE TODAY tells the compelling personal story behind one of the most important and landmark First Amendment cases in U.S. Supreme Court history, the case that set the foundation for the separation of church and state in public schools. The film recounts what McCollum later described as "three years of headlines, headaches, and hatred," but which eventually led to a decision that still resonates in the church-state conflicts of today, 60 years after the original decision in McCollum vs. Board of Education. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Out from the Shadows: The Story of Irene Joliot-Curie This program relates the life and times of Irene Joliot-Curie, the eldest daughter of Marie and Pierre Curie. Although less well known than her parents, Irene and her husband, Frederic, made a contribution to nuclear physics that was of equally ground-breaking significance. And like her parents, they were awarded a Nobel Prize. In 1934, Irene and her husband announced in a report to the French Academy of Sciences that they had created a radioactive atom which did not exist in nature. The discovery of the Joliot-Curies marked the beginning of a new era in the relationship of man towards matter: it had become possible to artificially create new atoms and new sources of radioactive radiation. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
