Who's in the Video
Christie Hefner, daughter of Hugh Hefner, is the former chairman and CEO of Playboy Enterprises.During her tenure, Hefner restructured operations and initiated the Company's highly successful electronic and international expansion.[…]

Christie Hefner says although she’s a special case, she had to prove her worth at Playboy.

Hefner:    Well, I’d have to say the number 1 is the work-family balance issue.  Now, my husband and I got married when we were older and don’t have children, but I am in awe of the professional women in my own organization and among friends and other organizations who balance not just being, you know, a good friend and active in their communities, but also being a wife and mother with being a professional.  And while I think we’ve made headway, we, for example, have had flexi time and part-time benefits for decades, it’s still obvious that disproportionately women bear the brunt of that work, you know, family balance requirement.
