Journalist and mother Sarah Lacy says working moms face a number of challenges in the workplace, from lower pay to the so-called "Maternal Wall" that hinders career mobility. "When I had children, I was stunned because I had spent my entire adult life being told that having children would make me distracted and weak and a worse employee." But she says, her experience as a working mom was much different. In her new book, "The Uterus is a Feature, Not a Bug: The Working Woman's Guide to Overthrowing the Patriarchy," she explains how working mothers can regain power in their careers. Lacy also joins us to talk about being targeted by Uber, sexism in the tech industry and navigating the workplace as a woman.
