Overview

The book traces the history of gender bias toward women throughout history and contains a study specifically geared toward bias, which occurs in the careers of women, and demonstrates that the participation of females and males in the workforce is quite evident.  A considerable amount of research exists that describes the lack of gender equity in the workplace. What is happening in the workplace and what should be happening in the workplace, in fact, appears to be quite different.  This empirical study includes original surveys, secondary analyses of the data, and reports that offer significant factors with regards to gender equity in the workplace.

As reported in numerous pieces of literature, men are often unable to understand what women want which is carried over into the workplace with the feeling that people act and talk differently.

Consequently, the workplace hurts women.  The reader will also become familiar with other enlightened people in our democracy who have assisted with this struggle in their efforts to improve and to bring further attention to gender equity.
