#EqualPayDay, Sheryl Sandberg, Mike Pence, Bill O’Reilly, Film and TV Reviews

Satellite Sisters recommend Big Little Lies on HBO. #EqualPayDay

The HBO series Big Little Lies has a great story, wonderful performances by fantastic women, skillful direction and awesome real estate. What more could you ask for, Satellite Sisters? Despite last week’s finale, it not too late to start now.

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.

Bill O'Reilly sexually harasses woman and insults her purse. #EqualPayDay

Hey, Bill O. It’s bad enough to come after us but do you really need to insult our accessories? They have no voice. #staynoisy purses.

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.

Julie is aghast at the lame officiating at the LPGA this weekend. Fans from home emailing in their own rulings a day later?  We are 100% against this.  Lexi was robbed.

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.

Julie reviews the film Silence by Martin Scorsese and the HBO series Big Little Lies.  She didn’t finish either but she’s still got strong opinions.

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.

Satellite Sisters March 8: Liz + Julie wonder why International Women’s Day is not so…International!

There's an important holiday we don't celebrate in the US. Can you guess what it is??

 

Julie and Liz connect on today’s Satellite Sisters to ask:

 

Why don’t we get to celebrate International Women’s Day? Julie has enjoyed this holiday in many of the countries where she has lived.  But hey, USA, what gives??

To make up for it, 0n Monday you can check out a great International Women’s Day webcast from the Women Athletes Business Network and Ernst + Young.  .Join Martina Navratilova, Summer Sanders and Donna De Varona LIVE at 11 am ET online : http://www.ey.com/GL/en/Newsroom/News-releases/News–EY-Women-Athletes-Business-Network-hosts-webcast

 

In other news, now that President Obama will be introducing COSMOS on Sunday night, will President Putin be tempted to do the same? Julie thinks he should.

How do people get on a plane with stolen passports in this day and age? Sadness and speculation about the lost Malaysian airliner.

Plus, Julie has one book she is absolutely not going to read and another one that she has changed her mind about.

One thing Julie and Liz both agree on that Bossy Girls Rule but calling them “bossy” might not be the best idea.  How about something like…say…LEADERS.

Please share this week’s Satellite Sisters with your own Satellite Sisters.
