Summary
"We are at a turning point in American economic history. Although women have made huge strides in attaining higher education and employment opportunities in recent years, these gains have not translated into money and influence. If we do not combat the insidious barriers and biases that prevent women from advancing in their careers, then women, and the American economy as a whole, will suffer for it. This book is a wake-up call to prevent subtle biases, i.e. the "soft war," from crippling women's aspirations and scuttling the US economy in the process. Women are now central to the economy, and whether it thrives or stagnates rests, to a large degree, on whether we win or lose this war"--
Summary
Two respected experts on gender issues and female psychology argue that today's high-achieving women are still being marginalized by biases and barriers that result in lower wages and economic setbacks, outlining recommendations for strategic steps to overcome gender-based career advancement
