Speaker Spotlight: Debora Spar – Molder of Women
Come September, women across the country will be able to benefit from the wisdom of Barnard president Debora Spar when her latest book, Wonder Woman: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection, hits the shelves. She's got the background to make her case: At the age of 27, Spar was already teaching at Harvard Business School, where many of her students were older than she was. She's led Barnard since 2008, and has also found time to write four other books, on topics from technology's impact to political economy.
