True equality for both men and women can only improve our society, argues Bravo, the former director of 9to5, the National Association of Working Women. Bravo's eyeopening book examines the problem of inequality for women in the workplace and in society, exposes the myths and realities regarding women's rights, proposes detailed feminist solutions to help create real social change, and offers examples of collective action taken by individuals and organizations like 9to5 to fight oppression and domination in all its forms. She illustrates how the changes feminists want, such as pay equity, flexibility for family care, universal healthcare, and quality childcare, offer a better way for all to do business, raise families, and build society. Very readable, at times humorous, and always informative, this book can be considered your personal handbook for taking on the "Big Boys," a relatively small group of men--and women--who control the wealth and power in this country, in order to create true gender equality. Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries.
