Good Girls Revolt

A conversation about barriers to women in the 1970's and now. Dick speaks with Lynn Povich about the women at Newsweek magazine who were relegated to the research department- and barred from writing. They sued and won. Dick and Lynn are joined by Jesse Ellison, a current Newsweek writer who looked at the situation for women now and found there are new barriers - subtle, but there. Lynn is the author of the book Good Girls Revolt.
