Sat 10/10,12pm:  On this week's Women's Focus, Carol Boss talks with Nancy Altman, founder and president of Social Security Works (Washington, D.C.) whose mission is to safeguard the economic security of those dependent, now or in the future, on Social Security.  They will discuss many things including why Americans love Social Security as well as current threats to its existence.Carol also talks with Hannah Brenner Johnson, co-author of  "Shortlisted: Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court", a story of 9 women who were on the presidential shortlists of potential Supreme Court nominees but who never got nominated.  Just as they've been overlooked so have been their stories. This new book presents a chapter in women's history that has not been written about until now.
