This morning’s episode of Morning Joe was devoted to co-host Mika Brezinski’s book, Knowing Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What You’re Worth. Guests included Newsweek editor Tina Brown, Carole King, Norah O’Donnell and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Each offered statistics on women’s pay and ratio to men in the work place, and theories on how women can make their voices better heard.
All great messages, but the best advice I gleaned from the show was from an old clip of Elizabeth Warren, who you may have read a bit about recently on BeltWiki Blog, The Washington Post or Rep. Patrick McHenry’s (R-N.C.) Facebook page. Appointment politics aside, her advice to women who want to advance other women in the workplace is sound.
I haven’t read Brezinski’s book, but I hope it’s filled with practical advice like Warren’s. Does anyone else want to put ” her damn hand up” to offer similar advice? Or just write it in the comments section.
