#28 – Microaggressions, Invisible Labor & Women’s Anger, with Gemma Hartley and Sarah Cooper

In the era of the #MeToo movement, Black Lives Matter and a torrent of books on the subject, it’s a time when women’s anger at the inequality built into our financial, economic and social systems is finally being heard. Or at least some women’s anger is. In this week’s episode, we’re talking with emotional labor expert and author Gemma Hartley, and comedian and author Sarah Cooper, about the moment women’s rage is having, as well as the steps that most of us must still take to function in a male-oriented career world.
