Last week, in honor of Women's History Month, I suggested five titles worth reading from the U.S. Department of Labor's Books that Shaped Work in America list. This week, I'm suggesting four more because, as we seek to improve the future for working women, it's so important to reflect on where we've been.
Three days before, I'd blithely admitted that my solution to reading a book too advanced for my 5-year-old son was to edit the story on the fly. Without missing a beat, I downgraded Voldemort's intention to kill Harry to the less-nightmare-inducing hurt. Yes, the book I was revising was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
