German TV Presenter
Eva Herman, a prominent talk show host and author, has been courting controversy over the last year by saying women should stay at home and bear children. Now she has been fired by the chttp://www.spiegel.de/international/germany/0,1518,504790,00.htmlountry's premier TV network for praising Adolf Hitler's family policy.
If anybody wishes they could turn back the hands of time, it is Herman. Forget about free will. Forget about emancipation. Forget about equal rights. If she would get a chance to start all over again, she knows what she would do.
"I would look for a man and let him work while I would take care of our five children"she said.
that is the families, that is a togetherness -- it was all abolished, there was nothing left," Herman said."Values such as family, children and motherhood, which were also promoted in the Third Reich, were subsequently abandoned by the 1968 generation."
The ironic twist in the whole story is that Herman -- who was, according to a 2003 poll, Germany's favorite news presenter -- won't get a chance to live her anti-feminist dream. At the age of 47, she has one son, is married for the fourth time and has a distinguished television career behind her.
