Carly Fiorina & Women In Leadership

How are women empowering themselves today?

Women are an integral part of today’s workforce. Although experts say that gender bias in the workplace is much more subtle than in past decades, women still face obstacles in receiving equal pay and gaining the flexibility to pursue a career while raising a family. "Full Frame" contributor Sandra Hughes talks with women around the world who have turned to entrepreneurship as a way to bypass restrictions of the traditional workplace.

"Full Frame" host, Mike Walters, sits down with Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, who reflects on her experiences in the business world and offers some insights on how the workplace has changed. Since becoming the first female CEO of a Fortune 20 company, Fiorina founded the One Woman Initiative and currently serves as chairwoman of Good360, the world’s largest product philanthropy organization.

Yael Swerdlow and Patricia Dao also stop by the studio to talk about how social media is being used as a tool to empower women worldwide. Swerldlow is co-founder of The Women’s Empowerment Foundation, which works to redefine feminist ideals and help women assume greater leadership roles in media and politics. Dao, the managing director of Girls in Tech Los Angeles, works to empower, educate, and inspire girls and women to pursue careers in technology.

Saundra Pelletier, CEO of WomanCare Global, joins the show to talk about how providing women with access to modern forms of reproductive healthcare empowers women to take control of their health and has lasting impacts on the health of families and communities as a whole.

Finally, "Full Frame" features Tatyana Fazlalizedeh’s art initiative, “Stop Telling Women to Smile,” which seeks confront street harassment through the portraits and words of real women.
