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.

Ten years ago, the idea of 3D films was still something out of science fiction. We knew it could be done, but it just wasn't practical. And then Hollywood took 3D mainstream. Now every action film seems to leap out of the screen and sneak up behind you. But Bettina Martin, a 3D engineer currently working in Burbank for a company called 3Ality Technica, thinks 3D can do a lot more.

Albany, NY – The economy has tossed hundreds of thousands of households into upheaval - and that's been bad news for family pets. Shelters around the country are inundated with cats, and with older dogs whose families just can't keep them. Those dogs are hard to adopt out, but there's a program aimed at changing that. Sue Sternberg is the founder of the Rondout Valley Animal Shelter in New York, which also has a national program called Train To Adopt.

Albany, NY – Politicians, and particularly Washington politicians, aren't enjoying great public opinion these days. The loud and highly publicized battles over the national debt have sent public opinion of both parties plummeting. What we sometimes forget is that these are just people. But if you go to the Capitol building, talk to the very first curator of the House of Representatives collection. She's enthusiastically tracking down the artwork and artifacts that put a human face on our policymakers.

Albany, NY – There's been a lot of talk about pay parity and the glass ceiling for women in the workplace. You may be surprised to learn that a new study shows that women actually work fewer hours than men but they get the same amount of work done AND make less money.

Albany, NY – It's hard to imagine being happy when you're sick - particularly when you've been sick for a long time. But that's what author Toni Bernhard proposes in her book "How to Be Sick." Dr. Sharon Ufberg, our wellness correspondent from California's Napa Valley, spoke with her about how Buddhist philosophy and acceptance can make being sick, or being the caretaker of someone who is sick, just a small part of your life story.
