Madame President


Last night on the Daily Show I saw the author who wrote "Madame President" interview.  This book looks amazing!  It is definetly on my book wish list.  I cannot wait to read this!  I loved the way the author described this book as a democratic coup!  This is about Liberia in 2005 who just experienced a Civil War for 14 years.


She told the audience that the women of Liberia blamed men for the trouble the country was in.  So they wanted a woman in power, and they made it happen!  This book is a blueprint of how they did it!  
I thought this story was perfect for Woman's History Month.  The majority of leaders in the world are male.  There is still this idea that women cannot lead, and amazing women are breaking this idea everyday!

Cold War In The Movies


The Cold War was between America and the Soviet Union, East v. West, Capitalism v. Communism.  This war or really competition lasted for 40 years!  It is called a Cold War due to no actual fighting.  They got close a few times to actual fighting.  One moment was the Cuban Missile Crisis when Russia put missiles in Cuba and pointed them at America.

That was the big fear - one of the countries would destroy the other.  An Arms Race was born.  


To fully understand the Cold War - you must understand Joseph Stalin during and after World War 2.  Stalin was an evil dictator, but he was on our side during the war.  That has been debated since then.  How could Stalin be on America's side? You can see this Cold War era and fear in the movies.


By the 60s Americans wanted to laugh!
