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

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.
