Love Inflexion Point Radio's thoughtful interview with two successful women in tech—CNET's Editor-in-Chief, and Co-Founder of Flickr.

One key moment that stood out for me was when CNET's Lindsey Turrentine talked about how apologetic she was when telling her boss about her pregnancy, and realizing that women should stop apologizing for things like that. It reminds me of how brave and smart Paige Green was when we started shooting again just 3 months after she had her baby (Paige is the Photographer-in-Chief and Co-Producer of The Big Flip). She jumped right back in, passionate and dedicated as ever. And promptly informed me that she would be bringing baby Ally-Boo-Boo. She didn't ask if she should. She didn't apologize. She did not let me doubt her desire to do what she's always done—take beautiful, heartfelt photos for The Big Flip. But she also loved her baby fiercely and wasn't going to compromise her desire to do what's right for him. It wasn't easy, there were awkward moments, but it was worth it for the quality of the film. Paige knew the talent she was bringing, and wasn't going to feel bad about what she needed to do as a mother. Feeling lucky to have her as a partner on The Big Flip.

Mariachi is "passed on from generation to generation," says Mireya Ramos, a musician who lives in New York City. "It's very traditional and very macho." Ramos tells filmmaker Jenny Schweitzer that she had "negative experiences" with other bands—that is to say, with the men who performed in them—and decided to form Flor de Toloache, a seven-piece, all-women mariachi group. "For people who are used to seeing men play, we're making a statement. We'r...

"Guilt often comes up in conversations with breadwinner moms and working mothers. Bloggers and experts advise moms to “let go”—stop blaming themselves. But that isn’t enough when guilt is also fueled by the collective expectations from the people around us, day in and day out. Schools that call mom instead of dad when the child is sick. Colleagues who exclaim “It must be hard to leave your baby!” after maternity leave.
As Mother’s Day draws near, I encourage all of us to also “let go” of some of our traditional expectations of what makes a good mom—and be creative in how we celebrate the big flip moms and working moms around us. Let’s celebrate their work and achievements as part of what makes them good moms—NOT something that compromises their ability to be good moms."

This came from a fun Stay-at-Home Dad luncheon we did while scouting for our documentary. Four stay-at-home dads talk frankly about the rewards and challenges of being in charge of home and kids.

Ben Mangan wrote this compelling post on why the Big Flip matters to all of us—even if we're not living it directly.  Ben is a Social Sector Provocateur who is the CEO of non-profit organization EARN, and also a Lecturer at UC Berkeley Haas School of Business
As American society and our economy continue to evolve, some clear trends are starting to emerge. Sometimes societal changes remain muted because they cause discomfort as old, powerful norms shift
