Megan Carpenter Ph.D.

We are in a climate now where women and men who have broken their silence on discrimination. They span all races, all income classes, all occupations and virtually all corners of the globe. They might labor in California fields, or behind the front desk at New York City's regal Plaza Hotel, or in the European Parliament. They're part of a movement that has no formal name. But now they have a voice.
