First Lady of California Maria Shriver is known for her activism. Now she's releasing a study that shows, for the first time, American women really are bringing home the bacon.

The comprehensive national study, called The Shriver Report: A Woman's Nation Changes Everything, is set for release October 16. In a preview, the findings are astonishing. The report says, "For the first time in our nation's history, one-half of all U.S. workers are women, and mothers are the primary breadwinners or co-breadwinners in two-thirds of American families."

According to a post on this year's Women's Conference website, this report focused on how "women can turn their pivotal role as wage-earners, as consumers, as bosses, as opinion-shapers, as co-equal partners in whatever we do into a potent force for change," adding "economic power gives women a new seat at the table -- at the head of the table."

After the report is released, the conversation will continue at the Women's Conference, scheduled for October 26 and 27.

Momlogic experts and contributors such as Paula Deen, Lori Getz, Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz, Dr. Wendy Walsh, Ashlee Holland, and Jill Spivack will also be there, sharing valuable insight and information.

It became a lot more well-known with the advent of Digg, which mixed Scrumptious and Slashdot’s functions.
