Author discusses new research on the gender pay gap

‘The Cost of Being a Girl,’ by Yasemin Besen-Cassino

Montclair State University Sociology Professor Yasemin Besen-Cassino discusses her new book, The Cost of Being a Girl, which explores the roots and effects of the gender pay gap–that roughly 20 cent-per-dollar distance between men’s and women’s earnings–on TUTV this Thursday.

Her research, recently published by Temple University Press, reveals how surprisingly early the wage gap starts and how much teenage work experience affects adult careers. By centering on girls and young women, Besen-Cassino filtered out factors that comes into play in peak earning years, such as childbearing and household responsibilities. It has been praised by Publishers Weekly and London School of Economics Review and was featured in the Washington Postthe Guardian, MTV, CNN, and the Philadelphia Inquirer, among many others.

Successful habits of highly sensitive people

Bouncing Back Empath

In a new episode of Bouncing Back premiering Monday, Lisa Bien learns about what it’s like being an ’empath’–a person with highly developed empathic abilities who is able to psychologically tune into the feelings felt by the people around them. Though this ability can be an asset, it is also a challenge to manage one’s own emotions day to day with the constant imposition of other’s. Lisa speaks to Regan Tilton, who grew up labeled a ‘sensitive child’ and had difficulty as an adult trying to juggle her deep feelings.

Lisa and Regan discuss how highly sensitive people need structure to cope with day-to-day pressures. She also found other coping mechanisms to be helpful, including Reiki, meditation, enough sleep, a healthy diet and more.

Tune in for these tips and insight on how to set healthy boundaries on this new episode of Bouncing Back with Lisa Bien, premiering Monday, November 19 at 12:30 and 8:30 p.m.
