THE NEW SOFT WAR AGAINST WOMEN, Rosalind C. Barnett and Caryl Rivers

Why the U.S. Economy Will Falter if It Succeeds  Many women have bought into the narrative, shaped by the media, that they are no longer discriminated in the classroom and the boardroom. Barnett, a Senior Scientist at the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University, and Rivers, an award-winning journalist and professor at the College of Communication at Boston University, will draw on the latest research to argue that we cannot as a society afford to continue to marginalize women, and that men and society at large stand to gain in women’s continued economic growth and success.
