Event Details

Are you or someone you know going to be in New York City on Thursday, May 1st? This is a FREE event that you don't want to miss!

Alarmists know that women are increasingly becoming the primary breadwinners for their households while also handling the bulk of the domestic responsibilities. To add to the stress, terrifying headlines about child safety, food and agriculture, chemicals, and everyday household products bombard women daily.

Rather than make women feel more informed, the onslaught of alarmist information makes moms (and dads!) feel guilty, confused, even angry, while doing very little to alter their choices and behaviors. With this panel we hope to reach out to parents and explain how activist organizations, the media, and government regulators work together to nurture a “culture of alarmism.”

Independent Women's Forum

Independent Women's Forum is an educational 501(c)(3) dedicated to developing and advancing policies that aren’t just well-intended, but actually enhance people’s freedom, choices, and opportunities. We work every day to engage and inform women and create a community to discuss how policy issues – including paid leave, health care, taxes, energy, minimum wage, and education – impact them and their families.
