The Ms. Show: Who is Mrs. Nancy Udell?

Ms Magazine Wonder Woman Cover

Ms. Magazine First Issue Cover

“Do you know the women’s movement has no sense of humor?”  “No, but hum a few bars and I’ll see if I can sing along…”  When I got a wedding invitation addressed to Mrs. Nancy Udell, I started thinking, does the younger generation still use Ms.?  Do they know what it means?  And where did it come from anyway?  On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, hear many, many different voices and views, silly and serious.  This show is dedicated to my mom, Mary Ann Udell, who passed away this year on April 30.  She was the original Ms. in my life and an ardent supporter of women’s rights. Thanks, Mom.  And Jim Atwood has a New Mexico Minute on Medicaid expansion for New Mexico.
