So much has been written about working women recently, but the headlines and the statistics don’t tell the whole story. Are we supposed to be leaning in or opting out? Can we have it all or are we asking for too much?
The truth is more complicated than the headlines. More and more women today are breadwinners, and these breadwinners are caught in a perfect storm of male-dominated culture at work, traditional social norms at home, and outdated school schedules that don’t gel with work schedules.
Join us for a preview of the new book Mogul, Mom & Maid: The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman, which tells the real stories of working women. Using examples from her own life, as well as lessons learned from the women featured in the book, author Liz O’DonnelI offers practical advice for working women on how to manage career and home. We’ll examine the choices women are making, the options they have, and the impact these decisions have on women, their families, and the businesses that employ them.
