This Week in Women

This Week in Women LIVE is Back!

My guest on Monday will be Joelle Boneparth, an assistant general counsel for a Fortune 100 company, an author, and a mother of two little girls. I’ve been hooked on Joelle’s weekly newsletter, Our Tiny Rebellions, since she started it earlier this year, and I can’t wait to ask her about it. Tune in LIVE on Instagram. Monday, August 16th at 4 pm ET / 1 pm PT. 

I’ve booked guests through mid-November, and I can’t wait to discuss everything from public health, to the state of the restaurant industry, to homebirth and so much more.

Who is Kathy Hochul? Meet New York’s first female governor

Hochul, 62, has been in public service almost continuously since the mid-1990s. After becoming a student activist and politician on SU’s campus, she began serving on the Hamburg Town Board in 1994. From there, she became Erie County Clerk, won and lost a seat in Congress, and won two terms as lieutenant governor.

“Now there will be no long, expensive court battle to remove him,” DuQuesnay said. “It opens the door for an institutional trustee such as Bessemer Trust, which resigned last month, to step in again and assist with financial matters.”

Conservatorship aside, Spears is a wealthy individual who needs professional financial advice, DuQuesnay said. “Her attorney can now focus on removing the conservatorship entirely or putting a system in place that works best for Britney,” she said. “Money, time and angst were all saved by Jamie’s decision to step down.”

A new Disney movie called “Spin” offers something different. The teenage lead is an Indian American girl. And she’s not that invested in getting the boy, Max. She’s way more interested in learning from him. She wants to be a professional DJ. And he knows how to help her get there.
