Political Theater Episode 4: Working Women Part 1

07/25/2017  By  Martin R. Schneider     No comments

It’s time to get to work.

Martin and Marta return with a new format and a new topic: movies and TV featuring women in the workplace. This intro episode talks about 9 to 5, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Contact, and their portrayals of subtle and not-so-subtle workplace sexism. Plus, we dubunk common common debunkings of the wage gap, and gender researcher Whitney Carroll stops in to talk about her new research projects and some of her surprising discoveries about perceptions of sexism.
