Inflection Point 18: Redefining Equality Pt. 2 - Simone Marean

Simone Marean

We all want our daughters to grow up strong and independent, but how do we ensure that 'having it all' doesn't mean 'doing it all'?

Simone Marean, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the non-profit organization Girls Leadership shares how to set your daughter up for success without burdening her with a fear of failure.


Our guest Anne-Marie Slaughter started this conversation with her polarizing article in the Atlantic "Why Women Still Can't Have It All." She continues the conversation in her new book "Unfinished Business" where she says that for true equality,"men's roles really have to change, they have to be care-givers as well as breadwinners."
