As a woman building her career in the south in the 1970s, and a women's rights advocate, Jennet Robinson Alterman has learned the value of proper negotiation. Her advice? Whether you are male or female: research, state what you want, then "stop talking."
She also discusses why her experiences in third world countries made it paramount for her to tackle women's issues in South Carolina when she returned, and the value of strong female presences and leadership in the workplace.
