The Council of Women World Leaders’ Madeleine K. Albright Women’s Voices at the Aspen Institute Series, in collaboration with the Aspen Institute’s Alma and Joseph Gildenhorn Book Series, hosted Katty Kay, Washington Correspondent for BBC World News America, and Claire Shipman, Senior National Correspondent for ABC News, on October 6, 2009, for a book talk on Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success (HarperBusiness). Walter Isaacson, President and CEO of the Aspen Institute, moderated the discussion.
This collaboration between broadcasting powerhouses Shipman and Kay gives career women explicit permission to demand the balance that’s been missing in their lives. The authors assert that after decades of trying to outdo men or fighting the Mommy Wars in the office trenches of the 1980s and 1990s, women have gained enough corporate clout to start changing the workplace to suit their needs.
