Mika Brzezinski, Author and Co-Host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Her 2011 book, Knowing Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What You’re Worth, offers suggestions for women negotiating salaries: 

"You've got to walk in there with your information, not your drama. Leave the drama at home. Money, in this book, is a metaphor for any relationship in life. And if you deal with it directly and you confront issues clearly and with a real sense of your value, you'll get exactly what you expect and no less. And everybody's happy, and the relationship thrives.”

"These are important — and probably far more significant — steps in terms of the big picture. But I'm just talking about what we can do now, given the situations we're in. Especially women who have made it to a certain spot in their careers but don't know it yet. That's a special category. It's the "marzipan layer," as I learned at Tina Brown's Women in the World summit. We're just below the top, but for some reason, we're paid far differently. We've come so far. We've broken so many glass ceilings. We can change this.”
