Barnard President Debora Spar on Women, Power, and Perfection
Monday, September 23, 2013
Barnard College President Debora Spar discusses how American women’s lives have—and have not—changed over the past 50 years. In Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection, she draws on her own personal experience as one of the youngest female professors to be tenured at Harvard Business School and as a mother of three. She also describes that the challenges confronting women are more complex than ever, and these challenges come inherently and inevitably from being female.
