Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead
Ask most women whether they have the right to equality at work and the answer will be a resounding yes, but ask the same women whether they'd feel confident asking for a raise, a promotion, or equal pay, and some reticence creeps in. The statistics, although an improvement on previous decades, are certainly not in women's favour - of 197 heads of state, only twenty-two are women. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally, and in the world of big business, a meagre eighteen of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO and one of Fortune magazine's Most Powerful Women in Business - looks at what women can do to help themselves, and make the small changes in their life that can effect change on a more universal scale. She draws on her own experiences working in some of the world's most successful businesses, as well as academic research, to find practical answers to the problems facing women in the workplace. Learning to 'lean in' is about tackling the anxieties and preconceptions that stop women reaching the top - taking a place at the table, and making yourself a part of the debate.

Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men
'A powerful, important and eye-opening analysis of the gender politics of knowledge and ignorance' Cordelia Fine 'Press this into the hands of everyone you know. It is utterly brilliant!' Helena Kennedy Imagine a world where your phone is too big for your hand, where your doctor prescribes a drug that is wrong for your body, where in a car accident you are 47% more likely to be seriously injured, where every week the countless hours of work you do are not recognised or valued. If any of this sounds familiar, chances are that you're a woman. Invisible Women shows us how, in a world largely built for and by men, we are systematically ignoring half the population. It exposes the gender data gap - a gap in our knowledge that is at the root of perpetual, systemic discrimination against women, and that has created a pervasive but invisible bias with a profound effect on women's lives. Award-winning campaigner and writer Caroline Criado Perez brings together for the first time an impressive range of case studies, stories and new research from across the world that illustrate the hidden ways in which women are forgotten, and the impact this has on their health and well-being. From government policy and medical research, to technology, workplaces, urban planning and the media, Invisible Women reveals the biased data that excludes women. In making the case for change, this powerful and provocative book will make you see the world anew.

Do Less: A Revolutionary Approach to Time and Energy Management for Busy Moms
There's nothing particularly easy about being a working mother... But there are some key things we can do to make it easier. In our culture, the way we work isn't working. Our addiction to busyness and obsession with always trying to do more leads us to feel like we're always failing our families, our careers, our spouses, and ourselves. We need to revolutionize the way we work. It's not acceptable to work ourselves to the brink of exhaustion, to constantly be on-call and checking our work e-mail around the clock. How do we fix the system? The answer isn't some corporate policy. And it isn't leaning in. It's a system within ourselves, in our daily work lives, and in our homes. Because the only way to create a new system is to be it. Instead of leaning in, and doing it all, entrepreneur and best-selling author Kate Northrup invites you to experiment with doing less. By doing less, paradoxically, you can have - and be - more. In this book, you'll get the permission and tools to change the way you approach your life, and embrace living in tune with the cyclical nature of the feminine. By cutting out the extraneous busyness, you'll have more satisfaction and joy, and you'll let yourself be more often instead of doing all the time. This book will help free many women to fly into the destinies they were born for. - Dr. Shefali Tsabary, New York Times best-selling author

Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders? (And How to Fix It)
Look around your office. Turn on the TV. Incompetent leadership is everywhere, and there's no denying that most of these leaders are men. In this timely and provocative book, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic asks two powerful questions: Why is it so easy for incompetent men to become leaders? And why is it so hard for competent people--especially competent women--to advance? Marshaling decades of rigorous research, Chamorro-Premuzic points out that although men make up a majority of leaders, they underperform when compared with female leaders. In fact, most organizations equate leadership potential with a handful of destructive personality traits, like overconfidence and narcissism. In other words, these traits may help someone get selected for a leadership role, but they backfire once the person has the job. When competent women--and men who don't fit the stereotype--are unfairly overlooked, we all suffer the consequences. The result is a deeply flawed system that rewards arrogance rather than humility, and loudness rather than wisdom. There is a better way. With clarity and verve, Chamorro-Premuzic shows us what it really takes to lead and how new systems and processes can help us put the right people in charge.

Liberating Hollywood: Women Directors and the Feminist Reform of 1970s American Cinema
Liberating Hollywood examines the professional experiences and creative output of women filmmakers during a unique moment in history when the social justice movements that defined the 1960s and 1970s challenged the enduring culture of sexism and racism in the U.S. film industry. Throughout the 1970s feminist reform efforts resulted in a noticeable rise in the number of women directors, yet at the same time the institutionalized sexism of Hollywood continued to create obstacles to closing the gender gap. Maya Montanez Smukler reveals that during this era there were an estimated sixteen women making independent and studio films: Penny Allen, Karen Arthur, Anne Bancroft, Joan Darling, Lee Grant, Barbara Loden, Elaine May, Barbara Peeters, Joan Rivers, Stephanie Rothman, Beverly Sebastian, Joan Micklin Silver, Joan Tewkesbury, Jane Wagner, Nancy Walker, and Claudia Weill. Drawing on interviews conducted by the author, Liberating Hollywood is the first study of women directors within the intersection of second wave feminism, civil rights legislation, and Hollywood to investigate the remarkable careers of these filmmakers during one of the most mythologized periods in American film history.

What It Takes: How I Built a $100 Million Business Against the Odds
Draw inspiration from Raegan Moya-Jones' empowering journey and learn how to take the leap into entrepreneurship. Raegan Moya-Jones is one of today's most fascinating entrepreneurs. Growing up a party girl in Australia more interested in travelling the world than holding down a job, she dropped out of college and moved to New York. Finally getting her act together she went into sales but soon realized corporate life wasn't for her. It was obvious that her (mostly male) bosses didn't like being challenged by an outspoken Aussie chick. So she decided to start a company on her own terms. And instead of quitting her sales executive job at the Economist, she quietly built her business in the small hours of the night after putting her young daughters to bed. Seeing a huge opening in the baby products market, Raegan started aden + anais, which introduced muslin blankets and the art of swaddling to the U.S. When the company reached $1 million in revenue in less than two years, she was finally ready to make the leap to a full-time entrepreneur. Skip forward ten years and today the little company she founded is a thriving international brand with a global revenue over $100 million, and Raegan has made another leap, launching Saint Luna, a boutique liquor company poised to turn the stereotype of moonshine on its head. John Burrough's quotation, 'Leap, and the net will appear' has always been Raegan's guiding principle in business. Her entrepreneurial journey - from babies to booze - will show the hopeful entrepreneur that she doesn't have to know it all, as long as she's willing to leap. If Raegan can do it, anyone can.

Ambition Redefined: Why the Corner Office Doesn't Work for Every Woman & What to Do Instead
It's time to acknowledge that not all working women are interested in climbing the corporate ladder or securing the corner office. Most want and need flexible, less life-consuming work to accommodate their real lives, and it's not weak, lacking ambition or letting down the sisterhood to pursue professional fulfillment and financial security through less lofty, or headline-making ways. Eye-opening and practical, Ambition Redefined is a welcome alternative to 'women's business books'. Sollmann calls it like it is: everyday women want and need flexible work that allows them to unapologetically pursue their own brand of ambition and success. She shows them how without sacrificing themselves, their careers or their families. Armed with practical insights and tools, readers will be empowered to go after opportunities beyond traditional definitions of work, career and success. They will learn why they should never leave the workforce, how to make a case for flexibility in a current full-time job, how to find flexible employers, industries and job functions and how to return to work after time away raising children or caring for elderly parents.

Good Company: The Fear(less) Issue
Published last season in the wake of her continuing bestseller In the Company of Women, Grace Bonney's Good Company is the innovative and supportive journal for women and non binary creatives at every stage of life, founded on the power of inclusivity, diversity, and celebrating the differences that unite. Its mission is to provide motivation, inspiration, advice, and a vital sense of connection and community. Sharing everything from overarching philosophy and pep talks to useful, targeted advice, the debut Community Issue brought together diverse voices (including Tavi Gevinson, Cynthia Erivo, Julia Turshen, Emma Straub, Ashley C. Ford, and Beejoli Shah) and experiences (from woodworkers, tattoo artists, bakers, mental health advocates, designers, and more). The Fear(less) Issue continues Good Company's mission to provide an energetic and highly stimulating place to connect, learn, grow, and work through the challenges that women across the spectrum experience in pursuing their passions and dreams. The Fear(less) Issue focuses on the subject at the heart of any kind of ambition: failure. We all fail - but it's how we fail, and how we recover, that separates a positive experience from a negative one. This issue shares words, stories, life lessons, and more as it explores something we all shun, yet which has a power unlike any other to help us succeed.

Women Kind: Unlocking the Power of Women Supporting Women
'Women Kind is an impeccably researched love letter to those who hold up half the sky.' Jamila Rizvi 'Just like #CelebratingWomen, this book is an essential and timely reminder of the collective power of women.' Kate Jenkins, Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner Women are rallying together in a massive and unstoppable force to make their voices heard around the world in ways we have never seen before. When Dr Kirstin Ferguson, an Australian company director, decided she was fed up with the vicious online abuse of women, she turned the tables and used social media to create the #CelebratingWomen campaign, profiling two women from anywhere in the world and every walk of life, every day for a year. The response was overwhelming. In Women Kind, Ferguson joins Walkley award-winning journalist and leading commentator on women in the workplace Catherine Fox to examine how women's shared clout is transforming communities, workplaces and leadership; show that every woman is a role model; and challenge the idea that women regularly turn on each other for scarce seats at the top table. Ferguson and Fox urge us to get on board and forget the old saying that when a woman climbs the corporate ladder, she needs to send it back down to help one other woman. What's needed is a fishing net to bring up many women together, all supporting each other. There has never been a better moment to join our voices, share experiences and celebrate the power of women supporting women.

Handbook of Research Methods in Diversity Management, Equality and Inclusion at Work
Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) have become features of organizations as a result of both legal and societal advances as well as neoliberal economic reasoning. While current research approaches frequently fall short of addressing the challenges faced in EDI research, this benchmark Handbook brings coverage of research methods in EDI up to date, and advances the development of research in the field. Bringing together well-known academics and researchers, this Handbook is a distillation of current and novel research in the field of EDI. Chapters present groundbreaking new research and methodological perspectives on international, regional and national issues, from equal opportunities and gender mainstreaming to managing diversity in legal, political and socio-economic contexts. Alongside this, the authors discuss new analytic directions to advance empirical EDI research. This Handbook will help to shape the present and future EDI discourse. The book is an invaluable addition to the current literature, particularly for students of EDI and researchers working in the fields of human resource management, strategic management and organization, and culture and change management as well as entrepreneurship and marketing.

Gender Equality in a Global Perspective
Gender Equality in a Global Perspective looks to discuss whether Gender Equality can be adopted as it has been defined in international documents anywhere, or whether it needs to be adapted in a more local context; discuss which factors and perspectives need to be taken into account when adapting Gender Equality to specific contexts; suggest research approaches for studies on whether a universal (Western) concept of Gender Equality fits in certain specific contexts; and finally suggests challenges to the existing interpretation of Gender Equality (e.g., theory of intersectionality); and the development of legal and policy framework. This book is situated within the tradition of comparative gender studies. While most other such books take up and compare various ways of implementing (or not implementing) gender equality, this book studies and compares whether or not (and to what extent) a specific definition of Gender Equality (GE) could be adopted by various nations. Thus, all chapter contributors will engage with the same definition of GE, which will be presented within the book, and discuss the possibilities and constrains related to applying such a definition in their particular national context. The readers will learn about the problems of applying a universal concept of Gender Equality and the possible reasons for and modes of adapting Gender Equality to different contexts. Gender Equality in a Global Perspective looks to maintain a critical and reflexive stance towards the issues raised and will seek to present multiple perspectives and open-ended answers. As such it hopes to contribute to the international discussion of human rights more broadly and Gender Equality specifically. The intended audience is not limited only to but will include policy makers, scholars and students with an interest in Gender issues, Organizational Theory, Political Science, Human Development, Policy Analysis, Globalization and other management sub-disciplines.
