FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, DC, March 6, 2015 — More than half of American women are the breadwinners in their households, but women still earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns.
Does that frustrate you? You aren’t alone.
What can you do about it?
For starters, pick up Sheryl Sandberg’s best-seller, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. In this easy-to-read primer on how to lean in, the Facebook COO provides additional data and research into why women have a hard time making more money, getting promotions, and seizing opportunities — along with 10 tips on how to reverse the trend.
Sandberg can’t make all these changes alone, knows Hope Katz Gibbs, founder and publisher of Be Inkandescent magazine. So in the March 2015 issue, she shines a light on dozens of women who are leaning in.
Also in this issue, you’ll meet:
- Anita Diamant, author of the “Red Tent,” the 1997 novel that became a runaway best-seller. Today, the author gives us another best-seller and another strong woman heroine to cheer for in The Boston Girl.
