Fifty years after the Equal Pay Act, why are women still living in a man’s world?
Debora L. Spar spent most of her life avoiding feminism. Raised after the tumult of the ’60s, she presumed that the gender war was over; she swore to young women that yes, they could have it all. “We thought we could glide into the new era with babies, board seats, and husbands in tow,” she writes. “We were wrong.”
Spar should know. One of the first women professors at Harvard Business School, she went on to have three children and became the chair of her department. Now she’s the president of Barnard College, arguably the most important all-women school in the country, an institution firmly committed to feminism.
Please join us for this exciting book talk which is part of the Clayman Institute's event series - Redesigning and Redefining Work. Books will be available for sale before and after the event and Spar will do a brief book signing following the event.
Free and open to all
