If you want to know why the Black woman in your section doesn't seem too friendly or why White women have so much to say about sexism but are mute about racism in corporate America, then this is your book. These ladies break it down pretty well. This along with Divided Sisters gives White and Black women who are truly interested in building solidarity with one another in and outside of the workplace great guidelines on just how to do that.
