Every woman knows how it feels to be marginalized.
The #MeToo Movement has exposed sexual harassment in the workplace, but what about the problem of gender inequality? Journalist Joanne Lipman says every woman knows how it feels to be marginalized, not taken seriously, overlooked, and underpaid at work. Lipman, editor-in-chief at USA Today, wrote the book “That’s What She Said: What Men Need to Know (and Women Need to Tell Them) About Working Together.” She calls it a realistic handbook that helps professionals solve gender gap problems. Finding solutions is good for the big picture, as companies with larger numbers of women at the helm perform better financially. Lipman talks with Ruth Marcus, deputy editorial page editor at the Washington Post, about her research and shares personal stories about her professional journey.
