Re: “Big Ideas: For Arkansas

About the ERA amendment... it may still be a controversial idea in some quarters, but the reality is that women's roles have changed a lot over the past decade. Now that we're caught in the middle of serious economic and environmental concerns, the balanced voices of women in our state is more crucial then ever. Women everywhere have an important role in their communities, and to acknowledge that doesn't denigrate the role of men. The needs of families and children can't be fully addressed by a male-centered perspective. Women need to be allowed to feel responsibility for stepping up to the plate. ERA is a starting point for that.

Re: “Big Ideas: Help a brother get further

I love this. This is the level where community has eroded and we feel it the most strongly. But it's an invisible spot. Who notices when community caring gets laid by the wayside? But it's the thing that used to hold the community together.

It's also important that some walls between diverse groups get lowered. We're better at seeing the needs of people like ourselves then the ones we don't know as well. Good going Dr. Baker!
