Women and business: May 8th, 2015

This week we celebrated one of the biggest fundraisers (and saw some pretty intense outfits) at the Met Gala, challenged our view of the classic women's restroom sign with #ItWasNeverADress and saw Amazon de-genderize toys on their site. Lifetime introduced new initiative 'Broad Focus' to encourage women writers, directors and producers to work on content for the network, people started tweeting their salaries with #talkpay and Janet Yellen said that having women at the table would have made the financial crisis look a little different. Business schools are having more trouble recruiting women, and we got ready to celebrate Mother's Day on Sunday.
