A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink

This week we talked about women in the workplace and the issues that we still face. Diva in Demand mentioned an incident where a male colleague was not happy about the fact that she and other females were networking. He felt threatened by the presence of a “old girls’ club”. She wondered aloud, could such a thing exist in our society, where women are still making 77 cents for every dollar men make to do the same work? Diva, Melette and I talked about disparities that we observed in education, the medical field, and corporate america in general. We watched a video which promoted the Shriver Report, A Woman’s Nation pushes back from the brink and talked about the Shriver Report, which seeks to address the issues women face through multi-media ventures, such as the HBO films documentary, Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert, which premieres Monday, March 17 at 9pm on HBO.
