 Please register Determinants of Health: Socio-economic Factors and Upstream Perinatal Implications with Stephen Bezruchka at 9am PST, noon EST, 4pm GMT

The first thousand days after conception has been recognized as the time when roughly half of our health as adults is programmed. Healthier societies privilege that period in a variety of political ways that allow parents time and resources to parent. Poorer people have poorer health and the United States, with considerably more poverty than any other rich nation, does very poorly in any health measure. That is except that we spend more on health care than the rest of the world combined. The culture in the U.S. stresses individual agency without providing the means to do well. Extreme economic inequality is accepted in the U.S. although the public is unaware of the huge gaps between rich and poor nor of their health impacts. This session will explore U.S. health status compared to other nations. Present the upstream factors that produce a healthy society recognizing that better political governance will change the circumstances that limit our achieving good health. There are steps for those in PPH to undertake to get us healthy again.

Please register Gender Equality of Representation in the World with Jim Prescott and Michael Mendizza at 9am PST, noon EST, 4pm GMT

Gender Inequality has existed ever since human history has been written. Pythagoras has given a moral definition of being male and female that has set humanity and its civilizations on a collision course with the extinction of Homo sapiens. No species on this planet is as violent toward its females and her offspring than Homo sapiens.

There is not a theistic religion on this planet that has affirmed the full equality of the feminine with the masculine, which has set in stone the perpetration of violence against women and her children. Prescott (1989,1995ab) has reviewed this history in essays: Genital Pain vs. Genital Pleasure:"Why The One and Not The Other?"; "Violence Against Women": "Philosophical and Religious Foundations of Gender Morality"; "OPINION: The challenge: achieve gender equality"; and "A Proposed Bodily Sovereignty Amendment To The U.S. Constitution."

Simone de Beauvoir�s The Second Sex originally published in France (1949) and recently reprinted in a new translation by Alfred A. Knopf (2009) is considered the authoritative translation of her work and the leading intellectual document of the feminist cultural movement. It is the foundation for restoring full equality between man and woman that was lost with the passing of the hunter-gathers some 8,000-10,000 years ago.

Violence against Women and her Children will exist as long as Patriarchy exists. The roots go back to ancient Greece—before the Abrahamic Religions.

Ashley Montagu stated in The Natural Superiority of Women (1952):


"Women are the mothers of humanity; do not let us ever forget that or underemphasize its importance.
