Happy #EqualPayDay. Today Lian Dolan, Liz Dolan and Julie Dolan take on Equal Pay Day and women in business, in general. Liz hosts a new podcast called I Hate My Boss, so we’re glad we have her on hand to take on Mike ‘I Don’t Eat Dinner With Women” Pence. And Sheryl Sandberg sobers us up about leaning in and getting 20% less pay. Finally, women in the workplace, beware of Bill O’Reilly. Not only will he sexually harass you, he’ll harass your handbag! Can’t a Satellite Sister get a break? Lian fills us in on her citizen diplomacy with International Women of Courage and the State Department. Liz has good news and bad news about Operation Sea Turtle, her health and wellness program. Julie has entertainment reviews from film and television.
We start the show with with Sheryl Sandberg’s observation on Equal Pay Day that even when women Lean In, they are not achieving equality with men. Julie shares an editorial from the Wall Street Journal by Yale professor Asha Rangappa about whether Mike Pence’s policy of never dining alone with a woman even on professional business might have unintended positive consequences. Liz and Lian don’t buy that for one single second. If your boss or your colleague or your employee refuses to ever eat alone with you because of your gender, that’s just wrong. Besides being just a throwback to an age we thankfully left behind where women were barely represented in the workplace.
And while we are on the subject, one detail in this New York Times story of Bill O’Reilly’s harassment is almost comical. When she rejected his advances, he insulted her purse? Women have to defend themselves against you, Bill, but our accessories have no voice. Lay off.
In Operation Sea Turtle, Liz found a new home for her mediation classes but was disappointed to read this news about the need for interval training.
Lian tells us more about her citizen diplomacy and provides Satellite Sisters in other cities some tips about how to get involved themselves. Thanks to the listeners who attended event at Global Minnesota.
If you are coming to our event at the Santa Monica Public Library on April 22 at 2 pm, you might also want to take in the opening of the Museum of Ice Cream in downtown LA. Our tickets are free. Theirs not so much.
