Why the speaker thinks Mr. Bush will lose the upcoming election in the United States. The main reason is that "the Republicans have lost touch with the reality of how women function in society." A detailed discussion of this premise follows, which includes a review of the changing roles of women in North American society. Statistics and economic figures are quoted. Also discussed is the transformation of traditional "women issues" into national issues. Changes in the marketplace both by and for women. The acceptance of women as managers. The role of the media in such changes. The Republican attack on the media, and its negative results.
