On Fireside Chats, Bryce and Derek discuss women’s fast ascent in the economy and the barriers they still face. They give an update on the “mancession” and evaluate how the recovery period has treated both sexes. Moving forward, are women poised to dominate the economy, or will affluent women “opt out” of the workforce? Why is the wage gap so persistent? They close by debating whether it’s finally time to be optimistic about the economy.
