Hey NYC, we are coming your way next week! Grab tickets to Unladies' Night: Unladylike Workers Unite at The New Women Space in Brooklyn on Wednesday, May 1st: It's a May Day (a.k.a. International Worker's Day) sound-off! Did you know that women make up 60 percent of minimum wage workers and 77 percent of tipped workers? So, why does most feminist career advice focus so much on glass-ceiling smashing and boss-babeing? What would happen if we worked from the bottom up instead? Join the Unladylike convo as C + C share surprising realities about what women in the workplace really look like and rad role models who’ve revolutionized life on the clock. Want to host an Unladies' Night at your venue? Reach out at email@example.com. Don't forget to listen to the Unladylike Pep Talks Album, available only on Stitcher Premium [stitcher.com/premium].
