Fighting on Two Fronts: The Hello Girls and America's First Women Soldiers
In 1918, the U.S. Army Signal Corps recruited 223 women at General Jack Pershing’s request. They were masters of the latest technology: the telephone switchboard. While suffragettes picketed the White House for the vote, the “Hello Girls” ran battlefield communications in France. Cobbs reveals the challenges they faced in a war where male soldiers wooed, mocked, and ultimately celebrated them. When the veterans sailed home, the Army discharged them without benefits. They began a sixty-year battle that a handful carried to triumph in 1979.

CProposition 13--Then and Now
Proposition was appropriate for its time, is it appropriate for our time? Prop 13 passed 41 years ago. Despite California being a different place today--demographically, politically, ideologically--—when pollsters ask voters if Proposition 13 is a good thing, the results are amazingly consistent. While the measure passed with almost two-thirds vote in 1978, it still enjoys that same two-to-one favorable margin in the polls. Yet, as Joel Fox, co-publisher and editor-in-chief of the website Fox and Hounds Daily, will outline, efforts to undo Prop 13 are heating up hoping to take advantage of the current political environment.
