Episode 91: Sandberg vs. Slaughter

To tell women who are bumping up against these intractable and structural problems that it’s all about you…is just extremely frustrating in the end, because it’s not all about you.
— Sheelah Kolhatkar

Two powerful women dominate discussions about women in the workplace today: Sheryl Sandberg and Anne-Marie Slaughter.

In this show New Yorker writer Sheelah Kolhatkar and I talk about each woman's message and philosophy and how they differ from one another. We also hear from some of you about what you think of them. And we ask what will galvanize change for women long-term - individual effort, or a system overhaul?
