Dr. Gina Barreca is a women's humorist, author, writer, speaker and professor at UConn. Her latest book, "If You Lean In, Will Men Just Look Down Your Blouse?: Questions and Thoughts for Loud, Smart Women in Turbulent Times" is a collection of fun, feminist-infused essays. The feminist humor maven stopped by "Just the Right Book" right before the Women's Marches to chat with Roxanne about the women empowerment books that we all need to read.
