    Battling Gender Equality Through Assertiveness—with Cara Tuttle Bell - 188

    It wasn’t until the late 60s that women could have their own checking accounts, so there has been progress toward gender equality.
    We’ve come a long way, baby!
    Or have we?

Cara has become an influential and award-winning leader in addressing sexual harassment and assault in higher education and a champion for the advancement of women on Vanderbilt’s campus. A contributing author to such publications as The Future Female Leader: Preparing Girls and Women to Lead the World, The Female Code: A Woman’s Book for Empowerment and Confidence, and the forthcoming Raising Daughters, she is the author of Drowning in Timidity: Women, Politeness, and the Power of Assertive Living.
    On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Cara joins Anjel to share how she overcame ‘people pleasing’ to become a champion for women and institutional advocacy.

    What You Will Learn Cara shares the story of the gender inequity she faced that sparked her path to institutional advocacy
    The current period of backlash we’re facing in the fight for women’s rights
    Why we need more equality in the voices of our educational institutions and corporate environments
