Abstract:

Part 1. When the body of Mary Rogers, a beautiful young woman from New York City, was found washed up on the Jersey shore in 1841, so began one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the century. Historian Amy Gilman Srebnick looks at the mystery as a window into urban culture in the book, The mysterious death of Mary Rogers: sex and culture in 19th century New York. Beth Engeler speaks with Gilman. (7:40).

Part 2. As a black woman, Janice Robinson says mainstream parenting magazines weren't speaking to her. So, she started Successful Black Parenting, a publication first produced out of her kitchen. Karen Kelly reports. (4:59).

Part 3. Commentator Helen Desfosses reflects on the positive changes that have happened for women in politics. (4:01).

Part 4. In 1986, Polar explorer Ann Bancroft made history as the first woman to travel to the North Pole on foot. Her subsequent attempt to cross Antarctica captured worldwide attention. What can we learn from a champion "goal setter" about approaching the New Year? Bancroft spoke with reporter AnnaMarie Ronning about how she is looking at the passage of time in a way she never has before. (4:10).
