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.

Women and Work: Feminism, Labour, and Social Reproduction
Feminism is once again on the political agenda. Across the world women are taking to the streets to protest unfair working conditions, abortion laws, and sexual violence. They are demanding decent wages, better schools and free childcare. But why do some feminists choose to fight for more women CEOs, while others fight for a world without CEOs? To understand these divergent approaches, Susan Ferguson looks at the ideas that have inspired women to protest, exploring the ways in which feminists have placed work at the centre of their struggle for emancipation. Two distinct trajectories emerge: 'equality feminism' and 'social reproduction feminism'. Ferguson argues that socialists have too often embraced the 'liberal' tendencies of equality feminism, while neglecting the insights of social reproduction feminism. Engaging with feminist anti-work critiques, Ferguson proposes that women's emancipation depends upon a radical reimagining of all labour and advocates for a renewed social reproduction framework as a powerful basis for an inclusive feminist politics.

Breathe, Empower, Achieve
Take five for mindfulness: Say no to burnout, and yes to balance! For so many women, work-life balance is a myth. And when you're already juggling a career, personal life, and family--plus your side projects, a smidgen of self-care, and the occasional need to sleep-- mindfulness can sound like just another thing to do. But if you take five minutes for mindfulness now and then, it may not only save your sanity--but also springboard your success. Let psychotherapist Shonda Moralis coach you through fifty mindful breaks ingeniously tied to your hectic schedule: Breathe mindful breaks promote calm and awareness through meditation, starting with Coffee (page 39) Empower mindful breaks bolster your self-confidence--say, to Unmute Yourself during a meeting (page 149) Achieve mindful breaks help you set and conquer goals . . . for example, by asking: Why Not Me? (page 240) If you think you don't have time for mindfulness, this book is definitely for you.

Sun Tzu's Art of War for Women: Strategies for Winning without Conflict: Revised with a New Introduction
Sun Tzu's classic treatise The Art of War has influenced countless generations of men when they find themselves on battlefields, in the office and in everyday life. On its heels comes this battle-plan guide specifically addressed to women, at a time when their positions and roles in business and society are being reframed. Sun Tzu's Art of War for Women helps women find paths to success through strategies and approaches made famous in the ancient Chinese text. Co-author Catherine Huang, herself the founder and president of a multi-million dollar corporation, has personally employed these strategies in her male-dominated line of work. Sun Tzu's tested strategies aim to achieve win-win outcomes. The guidelines for doing so include: Understanding your own strengths and weaknesses; Turning disadvantages into advantages; Thinking outside the box; Being confident in yourself and visualizing success. We're living in a time when female empowerment movements have incredible momentum and exposure from the Women's March to Me Too, which are highlighted in the new introduction. Though framed within a different context than the current movements, this book is another great resource for helping readers to consider not only what they want to achieve, but how to make it happen. Through Sun Tzu's time-tested tenets, Sun Tzu's Art of War for Women helps women tap into their inner reserves, unleash their hidden strengths and find professional and personal fulfilment.

It's Not You, It's the Workplace: Women's Conflict at Work and the Bias that Built it
Why is it that many women believe that working with other women is harder than working with men? A clue: it's not because women actually are harder to work with. After decades of working to help women to succeed at work, Andie Kramer and Al Harris noticed the same thing over and over again: Women's relationships with other women are causing conflict in the workplace and this is hindering careers across the board. Their research demonstrates that at the root of these clashes lie stereotypes, toxic assumptions and societal expectations about how women should behave. Through extensive research and hundreds of interviews, Andie and Al have identified the most fraught scenarios of women working for, working with, supervising, and collaborating with other women. It's Not You, It's the Workplace provides practical, immediately usable techniques that will allow women to develop strong networks that will foster their career success and organizations to structure their policies and practices - unlocking the potential of women in team situations. The companies that succeed in the future will be those where bias no longer blocks women's career satisfaction or advancement to leadership.

The Memo: What Women of Color Need to Know to Secure a Seat at the Table
The Memo is the much-needed career advice guide for women of colour specifically, finally ending the one-size-fits-all approach of business books that lump together women across races and overlook the unique barriers to success for women of colour. In a charismatic and relatable voice, Minda Harts brings her entrepreneurial experience as CEO of The Memo to the page, as well as her past career life as a fundraising consultant to top colleges across the country. With wit and candour, Harts begins by acknowledging the ugly truths that keep women of colour from getting the proverbial seat at the table in corporate America: micro-aggressions, systemic racism, white privilege, etc. Harts validates that women aren't making up the discrimination they feel, even if it isn't always overt. From there, she gives straight talk on how to address these issues head on and provides a roadmap to help women of colour and their allies make real change to the system. With chapters on network-building, office politics, money and negotiation, The Memo covers all the basics that any good business book should but through the author's lens, it offers support and long-overdue advice particularly for women of colour.

Toxic Femininity in the Workplace: Office Gender Politics Are a Battlefield
If there's one thing we can agree on in a post-Trump America, it's that sexism exists. While there are myriad books on female friendship in the marketplace, Toxic Femininity is the first book on the special relationship between female coworkers and gender dynamics in the workplace to hit the market in a comedic gifty way. Talented humorist Ginny Hogan explores themes of sexism, workplace gender dynamics, and the challenges facing women at work (particularly in STEM fields) with disarming wit. Toxic Femininity includes fun short pieces (such as, I'm Not A Sexist; I Also Ask My Male Colleagues If They're Menstruating and How Silicon Valley Created The Perfect Meritocracy If You Specifically Happen To Be A Young, Straight, Well-Educated White Man ), true-false and multiple choice quizzes (including: Are You Too Aggressive, or Are You Politely Stating Your Opinion? and Are You a True Feminist, a Male Feminist, a Feminist Just to Get Laid, or a Loaf of Bread? ), and even some surrealist essays (such as A Woman From The Year 3018 Visits a Tech Startup and The Noise-Canceling Headphone's Lament ). Toxic Femininity is a book that can be enjoyed in little sips or in one long drink. The variety of the pieces and the illustrations make a lovely and gifty package-this product is perfect for a mentor encouraging her mentees, a big sister preparing her little sister for the work place, or shoring up your best friend after a rough day. A conversation piece as much as a gift, the humorous nature of the work makes it possible to face topics that can be difficult to tackle head on; and we hope that this book will be able to serve not just as a gift but as a jumping off point for those hard-to have conversations that are a part of every work place environment.

The Other Half: Creating Gender-Balanced Teams for Sustainable Success
We live in a world that is unequal by nature. One could even say that its diversity is essential to all the world's survival. However, inequality among human beings is one of society's biggest problems. This book is about opportunities. It is about being at the forefront of a paradigm change and a win-win situation. And it is about leading one of the most compelling and exciting shifts in our society: women's empowerment. Company leaders are used to dealing with radical changes in markets, technology and customer behaviour as an important part of their job. They are accustomed to interpreting these changes and adding innovative solutions for them together with their teams. How they do this makes all the difference. But there is a story that corporations all over the globe have chosen to ignore. This story is the sum total of millions of lost opportunities, because over half the potential workforce was left behind. Although half the population is made up of women, only 50% of them can earn a decent living. The Other Half sets out to change just that.

The Mother of All Jobs: How to Have Children and a Career and Stay Sane(ish)
Have you ever looked at the lengthy school holiday dates and silently screamed in desperation? Have you gone part time yet are still doing a full-time workload? Have you ever been too afraid to ask about maternity benefits or flexible working? Do you constantly feel guilty about missing school events and secretly envious of other mums at the school gates who seem to be doing it all better than you? If any (or all) of the above rings true for you, you are NOT alone. While the demands of work are increasing with longer working hours and more pressure to remain 'switched on' to our phones and computers, the needs of our children and the world of school and childcare have stayed the same. Something has got to change before we all reach breaking point. The Mother of All Jobs brings together the wisdom of women who opened up about their experiences into a manifesto to help working parents thrive.

Opting Back In: What Really Happens When Mothers Go Back to Work
Taking a career break is a conflicted and risky decision for high-achieving professional women. Yet many do so, usually planning, even as they quit, to return to work eventually. But can they? And if so, how? In Opting Back In, Pamela Stone and Meg Lovejoy revisit women first interviewed a decade earlier in Stone's book Opting Out? Why Women Really Quit Careers and Head Home to answer these questions. In frank and intimate accounts, women lay bare the dilemmas they face upon reentry. Most succeed but not by returning to their former high-paying, still family-inhospitable jobs. Instead, women strike out in new directions, finding personally gratifying but lower-paid jobs in the gig economy or predominantly female nonprofit sector. Opting Back In uncovers a paradox of privilege by which the very women best positioned to achieve leadership and close gender gaps use strategies to resume their careers that inadvertently reinforce gender inequality. The authors advocate gender equitable policies that will allow women-and all parents-to combine the intense demands of work and family life in the twenty-first century.

The Likeability Trap: How to Break Free and Succeed as You Are
Be nice, but not too nice. Be successful, but not too successful. Just be likeable. Whatever that means? Women are stuck in an impossible bind. At work, strong women are criticized for being cold, and warm women are seen as pushovers. An award-winning journalist examines this fundamental paradox and empowers readers to let go of old rules and reimagine leadership rather than reinventing themselves. Consider that even competent women must appear likeable to successfully negotiate a salary, ask for a promotion, or take credit for a job well done-and that studies show these actions usually make them less likeable. And this minefield is doubly loaded when likeability intersects with race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and parental status. Relying on extensive research and interviews, and carefully examined personal experience, The Likeability Trap delivers an essential examination of the pressure put on women to be amiable at work, home, and in the public sphere, and explores the price women pay for internalizing those demands. Rather than advising readers to make themselves likeable, Menendez empowers them to examine how they perceive themselves and others and explores how the concept of likeability is riddled with cultural biases. Our demands for likeability, she argues, hinder everyone's progress and power. Inspiring, thoughtful and often funny, The Likeability Trap proposes surprising, practical solutions for confronting the cultural patterns holding us back, encourages us to value unique talents and styles instead of muting them, and to remember that while likeability is part of the game, it will not break you.

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.

Success from the Inside Out: Power to Rise from the Past to a Fulfilling Future
In Success from the Inside Out, corporate executive and leadership speaker Nona Jones takes you on a personal journey to discovering the difference between success that empties, and success that fills. Many of us aspire to achieve position, wealth, and notability in the hopes that those things will erase the pain of the past. But for those like Nona Jones who have experienced trauma, success requires more than a changed mindset--it requires repairing a broken spirit. Nona was appointed to an executive role with a Fortune 100 company at only 23 years old. Since then, she has led award-winning initiatives in public affairs, brokered multi-million dollar business deals, addressed the United Nations, and championed juvenile justice and education policy reform in the halls of Congress--all under the age of 35. Then in one of the largest wake-up moments of her life, Nona realized that her past battles were waging a present war. Though she tried to push away the memories, her childhood trauma continued to affect her emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically--until she made a pivotal decision. Success from the Inside Out charts the course of Nona's breakthrough--a course that can also lead you out of the storms of your past or present. Through her own remarkable story and insights, Nona helps you: Claim victory at the place where the defeat happened Recognize ways you use work to cover up inward brokenness Still the voices in your head that say you aren't good enough Choose not just empty success but fulfilling success Map your mile-markers toward your biggest goals Push through from brokenness to breakthrough As Nona writes, I've discovered that the only thing stronger than the power trauma has to change you is the power you reclaim when you acknowledge its effect on you. Success from the Inside Out is an empowering guide to finding healing from the past so you can move with freedom and hope into the future.

Women, Art and Money in Late Victorian and Edwardian England: The Hustle and the Scramble
Women, Art and Money in England establishes the importance of women artists' commercial dealings to their professional identities and reputations in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Grounded in economic, social and art history, the book draws on and synthesises data from a broad range of documentary and archival sources to present a comprehensive history of women artists' professional status and business relationships within the complex and changing art market of late-Victorian England. By providing new insights into the routines and incomes of women artists, and the spaces where they created, exhibited and sold their art, this book challenges established ideas about what women had to do to be considered `professional' artists. More important than a Royal Academy education or membership to exhibiting societies was a woman's ability to sell her work. This meant that women had strong incentive to paint in saleable, popular and `middlebrow' genres, which reinforced prejudices towards women's `naturally' inferior artistic ability - prejudices that continued far into the twentieth century. From shining a light on the difficult to trace pecuniary arrangements of little researched artists like Ethel Mortlock to offering new and direct comparisons between the incomes earned by male and female artists, and the genres, commissions and exhibitions that earned women the most money, Women, Art and Money is a timely contribution to the history of women's working lives that is relevant to a number of scholarly disciplines.

Female Firebrands: Stories and Techniques to Ignite Change, Take Control, and Succeed in the Workplace
Female Firebrands tells the stories of thirteen successful professional women, the challenges they've faced and how they overcame them. The author's definition of success has not only to do with their careers, but the fact that these women are also mission driven and doing good in the world. Challenges they faced range from not being taken seriously to being talked over, passed over, underpaid, and underappreciated. They share common obstacles and how they worked through and overcame them. They are whole people, and their stories are about work, family, balance, confidence, and what's motivated them along the way. They care about girls, women, and our future, and have made it by striving for their personal best vs. stepping on others on their way up. This book tackles serious issues in an honest and constructive way with a focus on solutions. Mid-career professional women will read this book and know they're not alone. Women who are earlier in their careers can save years of heartache and frustration by learning what's worked for women who came before them. When we compare the experiences of the firebrands to the Next Gen women, it is clear that young women are now more informed and empowered than earlier generations. They are quicker to recognize when they're being treated unfairly, and they are more willing to vote with their feet.

Women, Business and Leadership: Gender and Organisations
This book explores the range of challenges faced by women in business and leadership today, identifying how far we need to progress before women in business experience the same level of advancement as men. Including a range of different viewpoints, the book analyses women's position at work from three perspectives: the constraints affecting women's career advancements, gender-specific challenges to women in leadership roles, and women's experiences of undertaking these roles while trying to maintain a work-life balance. By highlighting the specific disadvantages relating to gender, chapters outline the extent of change needed culturally, as well as through policy and attitude, if women are to achieve parity with their male counterparts. Researchers and students of gender in management, leadership and organisation studies will find this a thought-provoking read, particularly those studying work-family balance and the future paths to breaking the glass ceiling for women in business.

Alpha Girls: The Women Upstarts Who Took on Silicon Valley's Male Culture and Made the Deals of a Lifetime
A Financial Times Summer Book of 2019 'The addictive stories of four incredible women who did things their own way and rewrote the code of a whole industry' Emerald Street Described as 'the book that the world needs right now' (Adam Fisher, author of Valley of Genius), Alpha Girls is perfect for fans of Hidden Figures, Lean In and The Social Network. Silicon Valley has long been at the forefront of innovation, but it is renowned for its archaic sexist culture. Alpha Girls is the unforgettable story how a group of talented women achieved success in a tech world run by 'bro-grammers' through sheer grit and determination. Despite the instrumental role they played in building some of the foremost companies of our time, these women have been written out of history - until now. In Alpha Girls, award-winning writer Julian Guthrie reveals their untold stories. *Magdalena Yesil who arrived in America from Turkey with $43 to her name and would go on to help Marc Benioff build Salesforce. *Mary Jane Elmore - one of the first women in the United States to make partner at a venture capital firm. *Theresia Gouw, who helped land and build companies including Facebook, Trulia, Imperva and ForeScout. *Sonja Hoel, the first woman investing partner at Menlo Ventures who invested in McAfee, Hotmail, Acme Packet and F5 Networks as well as founding an all-women's investment group and a national nonprofit for girls. These women, juggling work and family, shaped the tech landscape we know today while overcoming unequal pay, actual punches, betrayals and the sexist attitudes prevalent in Silicon Valley. Despite the setbacks, they would rise again to rewrite the rules for an industry they love.
