CHALLENGE TO WOMEN IN TIME OF WAR - Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, daughter of Robert Kennedy and niece of John F Kennedy JR talked with Elliott Masie about leadership, women, and courage on stage at Learning 2005. An attorney who followed her father's footsteps, she observed that leadership is challenging right now for women. "In times of war, people tend to think of leaders as men." She called for women to show courage, to have a stronger voice for two pending crises in America: the decline of public school and the decline of the middle class.
