Leading Voices: Debora Spar | Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection

Thu, December 12, 2013 8:00 A.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: $40 General Admission

Current President of Barnard College, former professor at Harvard Business School, member of the Board of Directors at Goldman Sachs, and mother of three, Debora Spar understands how difficult it can be for women to achieve professionally while balancing the concerns of family and the pursuit of ideal personal life. She is the author of six books, including Ruling the Waves: Cycles of Invention, Chaos, and Wealth from the Compass to the Internet, and numerous articles. In Wonder Women, Spar takes a “wise, worthy” (Kirkus Reviews) look at how American women’s lives have and have not changed over the last 50 years. “Tactfully navigating heated debates” while also narrating the story of her own successes and roadblocks over the years, Spar confronts the new issues that confront women and provides a roadmap for the future.

In conversation with Tamala Edwards, anchor, 6ABC Action News morning edition
