Mogul, Mom & Maid: The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman
There’s so much discussion right now about women in the workforce. Are we leaning in or opting out? Can we have it all or are we asking too much? But the headlines and the statistics don’t tell the whole story. The truth is, many women today are breadwinners and they are caught in a perfect storm of male-dominated culture at work, traditional social norms at home, and outdated schedules in the schools.
Join Liz O’Donnell, author of Mogul, Mom & Maid: The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman for an honest discussion about how women are balancing home life and career. We’ll look at the choices women are making, the options they have, and the impact these decisions have on themselves, their families, and the businesses that employ them.
