About a week ago, I sat on a panel of four women at the Heritage Foundation to discuss the rise of the female breadwinner. The point of the panel was to articulate the right-wing take on the Pew study showing that 40% of households have a female breadwinner. There were three conservatives and I was the libertarian. I’m grateful there weren’t four conservatives, but I’ll be a truly happy woman when I can be token libertarian girl on some left-wing panels too.
Here’s the lineup:
Syndicated Columnist and Bestselling Author
Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of Manning Up: How the Rise of Women has Turned Men into Boys
Director of Domestic Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation, an expert in the role that religion, family and community play in society and public policy
Executive Director of Independent Women’s Forum and co-author of Liberty is No War on Women
Libertarian blogger and digital publishing specialist at Reason.com
Well, that’s not what I do. But I guess Heritage would lose like $80 zillion if they said the first word in my blog title, although can we all not agree that the last word a far, far dirtier one? It was a pretty impressive lineup, and I am flattered to have been invited.
Here’s a good rundown.

Of course I wish I’d practiced more, and there were a million points I should have made. But overall I’m happy I did it and would love to do more!
