Hailing from the Appalachian foothills of Ashland, Ky., mother and daughter duo, The Judds, were first discovered by RCA label head Joe Galante in 1983 after landing a spot on WSM-TV’s “The Ralph Emery Show.”
They made their chart debut by the end of the year with “Had A Dream (For The Heart),” and the two were on their way to becoming one of the best-selling duos of all time. For the rest of the 1980’s, each single from The Judds released by RCA went to the Billboard Top 10, with 14 hits going all the way to number one. The Judds swept the CMA’s Vocal Group/Duo category from 1985 to 1991 and garnered six GRAMMY® Awards. They embarked on their “Farewell Tour” in 1991 after Naomi’s diagnosis of Hepatitis C forced her to retire from the road. Naomi focused on her health, beating the disease and wrote several New York Times best-selling books.
Today, Naomi is promoting her new memoir “River of Time: My Descent Into Depression and
How I Emerged With Hope.”
Invisible Bias – The Fatal Impact Of A World Designed For Men
Thursday, September 30 @ 11am EDT
Gender bias is everywhere and it impacts the lives of women everyday. We live in a world where:
- Women are 17% more likely to be killed in a crash because cars have been designed around the bodies of male crash test dummies.
- Women are 27% less likely than men to receive CPR from bystanders in public because CPR training does not include women’s figures.
Often, the way the world is designed caters only to one gender harming people in ways we do not understand.
Join the United States of Women and VERITY NOW for a conversation about gender bias in data and learn how you can take action to advocate for equity in design.
