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.

Machiavelli For Women
From the NPR host of The Indicator podcast and correspondent for Planet Money comes a guide for how today's women can apply the principles of 16th-century philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli to their work lives and finally shatter the glass ceiling once and for all-perfect for fans of Feminist Fight Club, Lean In, and Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office. Women have been making strides towards equality for decades, or so we're so often told. They've been increasingly entering male-dominated areas of the workforce and consistently surpassing their male peers in grades, university attendance, and degrees. They've recently stormed the political arena with a vengeance. But despite all of this, the payoff is-quite literally-not there: the gender pay gap has held steady at about 20% since 2000. And the number of female CEOs for Fortune 500 companies has actually been declining. So why, in the age of #MeToo and #TimesUp, is the glass ceiling still holding strong? And how can we shatter it for once and for all? Stacy Vanek Smith's advice: ask Machiavelli. Using The Prince as a guide and with charm and wit, Smith applies Renaissance politics to the 21st century, and demonstrates how women can take and maintain power in careers where they have long been cast as second-best. Based on the latest research, tips from successful women across many industries, and experiences from Smith's own life, Machiavelli for Women is a powerful, entertaining, and inspirational guide for a new generation of successful women.

Explicit Ambition: Why Women Don't Want Power, and What We Want Instead
The #MeToo movement has brought unprecedented global awareness to persistent gender inequality in the business world. Meanwhile, corporate North America invests tens of millions of dollars each year in initiatives designed to support high-potential women, with precious little to show for it. The number of female CEOs leading the world's largest companies has remained unchanged in the last twenty years. So what's the missing link? In this provocative, entertaining, and irreverent guide, women's leadership expert Eleanor Beaton tackles the critical yet grossly under-explored link between women's professional advancement and their relationship with power. Leaning in only gets you so far; it's time to unpack why you don't want the power you so desperately crave.

Nothing says this more than Silicon Valley with its macho mantras like 'Move fast and break things' (Facebook) or 'We're a team not a family' (Netflix). But this model is looking increasingly flawed.

Why Women Are Poorer Than Men and What We Can Do About It
Money gives us freedom. It gives us choices . . . But why is it women are nearly always poorer than men? The modern world is rigged unfairly in men's favour. Exploring injustices and penalties from pensions to the tampon tax, bearing children to boardroom bullying, Annabelle Williams, financial journalist for The Times, shows how society conspires to limit women's wealth. - Did you know that the NHS spends more on Viagra than helping single mother families eat healthily? - Or, that women are the majority of the elderly poor? - Or, that female entrepreneurs only receive 1p in every GBP1 of funding given to start-up businesses? The way things are going it will take 200 years to close the gender pay gap, but Annabelle shows how economic inequality is a much bigger problem than what women earn. Economies thrive when women do well, and only by understanding why women are poorer than men can we finally end this unfair disparity between the sexes. Why Women Are Poorer Than Men reveals how we got here and what all of us can do to fix it.

Equal: A story of women, pay and the BBC
EQUAL is BBC journalist Carrie Gracie's urgent call to arms - a powerful story about how women can fight for equal pay, and how men and employers can help them. Longlisted for the Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award 2019 Gracie joined a group of high-profile BBC women who challenged the national broadcaster over equal pay after enforced disclosures revealed huge gaps between top men and women. Gracie had insisted on equal pay at the time of her China posting, and after trying with other BBC women to put things right through negotiation, she eventually resigned her post complaining publicly of a 'secretive and illegal' pay culture. Her protest triggered a parliamentary inquiry into BBC pay, and after a protracted internal complaints process, she won an apology from the BBC and a settlement which she donated to the Fawcett Society. In Equal Gracie will tell her own story, explore why it is often so hard for women to assert their value in the workplace and give practical guidance on what women, men and employers can do to achieve equality for this and future generations of women.

The Fix: Overcome the Invisible Barriers That Are Holding Women Back at Work
In the vein of #Girlboss and Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office, discover how to thrive at work from the head of the Global Innovation Coalition for Change at UN Women with this passionate, practical roadmap for addressing inequality and finally making our workplaces work for women (Arianna Huffington). For years, we've been telling women that in order to succeed at work, they have to change themselves first-lean in, negotiate like a man, don't act too nice or you'll never get the corner office. But after sixteen years working with major Fortune 500 companies as a gender equality expert, Michelle King has realized one simple truth-the tired advice of fixing women doesn't fix anything. The truth is that workplaces are gendered; they were designed by men for men. Because of this, most organizations unconsciously carry the idea of an ideal worker, typically a straight, white man who doesn't have to juggle work and family commitments. Based on King's research and exclusive interviews with major companies and thought leaders, The Fix reveals why denying the fact that women are held back just because they are women-what she calls gender denial-is the biggest obstacle holding women back at work and outlines the hidden sexism and invisible barriers women encounter at work every day. Women who speak up are seen as pushy. Women who ask for a raise are seen as difficult. Women who spend hours networking don't get the same career benefits as men do. Because women don't look like the ideal worker and can't behave like the ideal worker, they are passed over for promotions, paid less, and pushed out of the workforce, not because they aren't good enough, but because they aren't men. In this fascinating and empowering book, King outlines the invisible barriers that hold women back at all stages of their careers, and provides readers with a clear set of takeaways to thrive despite the sexist workplace, as they fight for change from within. Gender equality is not about women, and it is not about men-it is about making workplaces work for everyone. Together, we can fix work, not women.

Uncanny Valley: A Memoir
The prescient, page-turning account of a journey into Silicon Valley: a defining memoir for our digital age. At twenty-five years old, Anna Wiener was beginning to tire of her assistant job in New York publishing. There was no room to grow, and the voyeuristic thrill of answering someone else's phone had worn thin. Within a year she had moved to San Francisco to take up a job at a data analytics start-up in Silicon Valley. Leaving her business casual skirts and shirts in the wardrobe, she began working in company-branded T-shirts and hoodies. She had a healthy income for the first time in her life. She felt like part of the future. But a tide was beginning to turn. People were speaking of tech start-ups as surveillance companies. Out of sixty employees, only eight of her colleagues were women. Casual sexism was rife. Sexual harassment cases were proliferating. And soon, like everyone else, she was addicted to the internet, refreshing the news, refreshing social media, scrolling and scrolling and scrolling. Slowly, she began to realise that her blind faith in ambitious, arrogant young men from America's soft suburbs wasn't just her own personal pathology. It had become a global affliction. Uncanny Valley is a coming of age story set against the backdrop of our generation's very own gold rush. It's a story about the tension between old and new, between art and tech, between the quest for money and the quest for meaning - about how our world is changing for ever.

Gender, Power, Law & Leadership
Women enter the professions in numbers equal to men but comprise only a fraction of leadership roles in politics, the judiciary, law firms, the corporate world, higher education and beyond. Women of color fare even worse. Written in direct response to this glaring inequality, Gender, Power, Law & Leadership offers a new, innovative approach to address and remedy enduring gender disparities. Essential reading for anyone aspiring to a leadership role, the book exposes readers to intersections of gender, race, class, power and law through both historical and contemporary works. It also explores post-feminism discrimination ignored by the modern legal system, including the glass cliff, shortlisting, emotional taxation, admin burdens, work wife syndrome, gender sidelining, imposter syndrome and other gender-based barriers. The book is designed for a semester-long course in law school and higher education classrooms. Each of the nine chapters weaves together excerpts of cases and articles designed to facilitate discussion based upon carefully crafted thought questions. Narratives about transformative women leaders appear throughout to educate, inspire, and mentor students. The conclusion offers concrete guidance for readers to apply in their educational and professional lives as they pursue leadership paths, and proposes reforms to create a world of leaders who reflect the public they serve.

Understanding the Relationship Between Religion and Entrepreneurship
In recent years, a number of scholars trained in the area of economics have begun to pay attention to a fascinating and increasingly important question: Does the interrelationship between religion and enterprise shape entrepreneurial decision making? Though religious groups can provide additional means for the generation of social capital, especially where ethnicity is strongly associated with specific religious adherence, it has been largely absent in economic discussions. Understanding the Relationship Between Religion and Entrepreneurship is a collection of innovative research on the methods and applications of religious theology on entrepreneurial decision making. While highlighting topics including women in business, religious marketing, and consumer behavior, this book is ideally designed for entrepreneurs, theologists, business managers, policymakers, researchers, industry professionals, academician, and students seeking current research on the economic impacts of religious beliefs and practices.

Women, Sustainable Entrepreneurship and the Economy: A Global Perspective
When a woman decides to become an 'entrepreneur,' she starts her business with a sense of excitement, freedom, wealth, happiness, prestige; however, these feelings can soon turn to fears over debt, difficulties, unpaid invoices, stress, and uncertainty. Being an entrepreneur means taking risks, making decisions, adapting management styles in line with developmental needs, clashing with rivals, being more agile than competitors, negotiating risky scenarios, following business trends, capturing new opportunities before, and being better than the competition. If a woman wants to be successful as an entrepreneur, she needs to have a business education, undergo continued professional development, and have patience and emotional intelligence. Supporting women in their entrepreneurial activities has been shown to positively affect the economy, which is why governments pay special attention to opening new funding opportunities and training programs for women who want to start or develop a business. Female entrepreneurship has individual characteristics because of those aspects of the business which are affected by cultural, technological, legislative, social, and historical developments. This book discusses the relationship between female entrepreneurship and the economy, and academic authors from developing countries such as Brazil, Turkey, Albania, Kosovo, Portugal, and Malaysia analyze the developments encompassing women and entrepreneurship in their respective countries. The authors discuss the regulatory frameworks of each country to show how these either help or hinder female entrepreneurship, and consequently, the place of women in the economy. Women and entrepreneurship is an emerging theme, and this book is a must-read for researchers from both developing and developed countries.
