Meet the founder of Feminist.com!  Jack Tuckner and Deborah O’Rell interview Marianne Schnall, a highly regarded journalist who has been at the forefront of issues related to women’s leadership for decades.  She has interviewed everyone from Maya Angelou to Melinda Gates and most recently, President Jimmy Carter and Arianna Huffington as part of her ongoing coverage that has been featured in publications ranging from Huffington Post to Time and O, the Oprah Magazine.

 

Marianne’s first book was Daring to Be Ourselves: Influential Women Share Insights on Courage, Happiness and Finding Your Own Voice, which included a collection of interviews of reputable women leaders and which inspired the format of What Will it Take to Make a Woman President? Conversations About Women, Leadership & Power, which was built around the question posed by her 8 year old daughter following the election of President Obama.

 

Marianne is also founder of Feminist.com, which was started in 1995 working with a team of influential women and organizations, and is currently working to grow her book into a larger movement and organization to harness the ideas of the women and men she has interviewed and to advance the cause of women’s leadership in partnership with Political Parity and other national organizations across the country.

As actor Jim Carrey said in a recent inspired commencement address played in part on this show, many people make decisions based in fear disguised as practicality, when they could instead ask the universe for what they really want--and are passionate about manifesting in their lives--just like Jim did, and his father did not.
Similarly, 70% of American employees feel that work is a dispiriting and depleting experience.  Demands from the workplace, home, and life in general are pushing more and more people to burnout.  Join Women's Rights in the Workplace Advocates Jack Tuckner and Deborah O'Rell as they continue chatting with Joy Murphy, ACC, an executive and life coach specializing in leadership development and personal growth, regarding what steps stressed out and unhappy employees can take to regain control over their burned out lives.

Join Jack Tuckner and Deborah O’Rell as they rant and bemoan the underused legal theory of “sex plus” discrimination, the practice of making employment decisions based on differentiations between employees within the same gender because of an additional “plus” characteristic.  Examples include discriminatory practices affecting members of one gender (always female, as a practical matter), combined with an additional factor, such as women with young children, or single women, or women of a certain age, etc.
