Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

Women's Spaces' Recent Broadcast TV Shows

(posts online after the show has been submitted for Cable TV Broadcast)

 

Arranged by most recent show first.

 

Visit  the Community Media Center's CMediaLab website for the cable TV broadcast schedule for the current month where you can Find "Women's Spaces" show slots and Elaine Holtz Special show slots.  I find the browser Find function works better for searching the page rather than the Search of CMedia.   If you click on the show's title on the schedule a new window comes up with an online video (if available) and the schedule of the broadcast of the particular show over the next weeks.
