Just in time for International Women's Day, Roxanne Taylor of Accenture offers us a "silver lining in the dark cloud of joblessness": women's resiliance. When times get tough, companies look to employees who are flexible, resiliant, and will ensure the company's future success. Says Roxanne,
After decades of marches, boycotts, lobbying and rallies, did the protests of the past 40 years really make a difference? Do protests still work? Can women still advocate change through social activism?

The economic crisis or our Great Recession is unprecedented in terms of its global reach and its impact on governments, corporations and individuals alike. What this crisis has also done is profoundly demonstrate the existing disparities and inequalities within the United States.
