Challenges for Women in Business

Christie Hefner says although she’s a special case, she had to prove her worth at Playboy.

Hefner:    Well, I’d have to say the number 1 is the work-family balance issue.  Now, my husband and I got married when we were older and don’t have children, but I am in awe of the professional women in my own organization and among friends and other organizations who balance not just being, you know, a good friend and active in their communities, but also being a wife and mother with being a professional.  And while I think we’ve made headway, we, for example, have had flexi time and part-time benefits for decades, it’s still obvious that disproportionately women bear the brunt of that work, you know, family balance requirement.
