My 15-year old daughter, Haley, and I were in the car on an errand. I told her I had to write an article about something in the workplace. Curious to know her thoughts, I asked what she would write about. She replied, "Sexual harassment—or not stealing other people’s pens."

Haley, and my 16-year old daughter Hannah, will one day enter the workforce. So will their classmates. So will children you know. They are watching the news. They are watching our reactions. They are wondering what their opportunities and challenges will be. What will become of their rights when something goes wrong? Will they be protected?
