Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Building on her experience as a corporate management consultant, Bowman presents women with a solid work devoted to expanding their sense of self-worth and leadership skills though discussions of gender issues and pragmatic information. Bowman defines "the Venus trap" as the place where most women find themselves in a male-dominated society and workplace. She clearly outlines the ways in which women are typically victimized and the appropriate coping skills needed to overcome these obstacles. The writing strikes a good balance between advocating women's rights and dealing with the current situation in a practical manner. Chapters are well defined and clearly presented. A good purchase for most public libraries' popular psychology collections.Priscilla Davis Dann, Gates Mills P.L., Ohio
