She explores the role of women in keeping struggling families afloat in insecure times.

In addition to her newly released book, Cooper was the lead researcher for Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg. She is a contributor to, a contributing writer to The Atlantic, and a LinkedIn Influencer.
