Listen in as I have an honest conversation with Award-Winning Civil Rights Attorney, Best-Selling Author, Areva Marin Esq. discussing her book, AWAKENING, in which she continues to explore societal norms for gender roles within America’s average working environment. Challenging a supposedly forward- thinking society to look in the mirror and re-evaluate the archaic perspective of a woman’s role in and around the workplace. She intends for this 185-page book to be the average working woman’s manual to breaking outdated generational gender roles.
