Women in the Work Force: Critical Issues
American women have made significant strides in the workplace. But they still lag behind men in pay and advancement. Those issues are at the heart of a job discrimination lawsuit against Wal-Mart. Next week the U.S. Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments on aspects of the case, which could affect more than a million women. In the next hour, we'll talk with three women - a lawyer, an economist and a journalist - each with a different generation's perspective on gender equality in employment. And we'll explore why workplace flexibility has become increasingly important for both men and women.
