This is the podcast version of a two-minute story I did for Marketplace back in February. For the podcast I interviewed a couple of other people and expanded the stories of all the women I spoke to.
The number of women going into family firms is going up - in the US it's almost five times higher than it was in the late 1990s. But these women still face quite different challenges than their brothers, even in 2014. Tune in to hear five women from different generations talk about the pros and cons of being a daughter working at the family firm, including one who is now running the business.
