From the #MeToo to the #TimesUp movements, 2017 was a momentous year for women internationally. Let's make 2018 the year that is not only for women, but also ignites a permanent forum for women's rights.

PressforProgress is the discussion on the changes taken from within male-dominated industries. For example, Tesla has just signed on Ebony Media's CEO Linda Johnson Rice to its board. What kind of message does this send to all genders in the workplace?

Rickey Bevington, GPB's Senior Anchor, will moderate this discussion.
