News from EPI Women and Work: Are Women Leaning In or Being Run Over?

On Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at 11 a.m., the Economic Policy Institute will host a discussion on what needs to change to give women meaningful equality in the workplace. In 2015, most women do not have high wages, paid leave, affordable child care, or equal pay. Do working women need to “lean in,” or are we still working toward basic rights at work?
