In America, women make up more than half the population. Worldwide, women are expected to outnumber men within the next fifty years - and every issue we face is one that affects us all. 

Whether it's the environment, health, our children, politics or the arts, there's a women's perspective, and 51% is a show dedicated to that viewpoint. 

Host Allison Dunne talks to experts in their field for a wide-ranging, entertaining discussion of issues that not only fall into the traditional 'women's issues' category, but topics that concern us all as human beings and citizens of the global community.

Tune to 51% weekly throughout the U. S. on public and community radio stations, some ABC Radio Network stations, Armed Forces Radio stations around the world and on the internet.

That’s all changed. A record ice melt this year has scientists now predicting that the summer ice could be gone in less than ten years – by 2020. What does that mean? Rising oceans and problems for coastal communities, but also bigger climate shifts without the polar ice to reflect back the sun’s rays.

The term midwife usually conjured pictures of home births and traditional medicine. But midwifery has changed drastically. Some of the changes are positive, leading to new options for women’s health care.  But some of those changes are causing those in the profession to struggle with the requirements of Western medicine versus the expectations of the women they serve.  Susanrachel Condon is a licensed midwife in New York and a member of the Board of the NYS Association of Midwives.
