Fellow Female Entrepreneurs: It’s Partly Our Own Fault That Male Entrepreneurs Earn More

We’re not taken as seriously as men. Men are just more aggressive when it comes to charging more. But I think we have to admit our own role...

Women, too, must lobby for this change.Six to eight months of sequential parental leave may not be the best approach fo...
