Why Can't A Woman Succeed Like A Man?Unknown - 2010
When it comes to corner office clout, women overall have not succeeded in the workplace to the degree that men generally have. In an effort to come to grips with that assessment, this program refuses to shy away from the hard questions as it sheds light on what is seen less as a glass ceiling and more as a glass maze. The central issue is whether, practically speaking, women can, should, or even desire to â€œhave it allâ€ by pursuing a career and raising a family. Drawing on hard science, social science, and pop science, the program considers the realities of gender inequality as it examines matters of sex discrimination in the workplace, business priorities and practices involving maternity leave, the effects of nature and nurture on innate competitiveness, the state of the nuclear family in an era of two-earner households, why it is assumed women should be more responsible for child-rearing than men, and whether the womenâ€™s movement has in some measure boomeranged.
