Episode Summary

The Wage Gap, the Conscience Clause and Air Travel
Tuesday, April 19th was just marked "Equal Pay Day," by feminist organizations and Hillary Clinton in an effort "to raise awareness about unfair pay for women." "First Up" Tucker speaks with Warren Farrell, author of Why Men Earn More: The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap and What Women Can Do About It and a former member of the New York NOW board of directors. Farrell argues that conscious choices made by women, not sexism, explains the gender gap.

"Plus 2" this week Tucker is joined by The National Review's Jonah Goldberg and The New Republic's Peter Beinart to discuss the legislative battle over the right of pharmacists to refuse to fill contraception prescriptions. Legislators in at least 12 states have introduced this "conscience clause bill" to allow pharmacists to refuse to dispense contraceptives if they have moral or religious objections.

And to add to our currently anxious feelings about flying, the U.S. government announced this week that it may plan to force foreign airlines that fly over American soil to turn over the names of passengers on board to cross-check the United States' terrorist watch lists. On our "Back Page" Tucker talks with Patrick Smith, pilot and writer behind Salon's "Ask the Pilot" column.moreless
