In “Brotopia,” Bloomberg journalist Emily Chang digs deep into Silicon Valley's boys' club atmosphere, rife with company sex parties, workplace harassment and elitism. Chang argues that while women have historically made critical contributions to the field of computer science, the technology industry regards them as second-class citizens, at best. She describes an industry that simultaneously prides itself on its progressive politics yet treats women with hostility. We'll talk to Chang about the implications of this paradox for a world increasingly shaped by the Valley's inventions.
