From the Publisher
"..Contributors address a wide range of topics, but two --sexual harassment and leadership--receive the most coverage. Analyses of gender stereotypes and their impacts are also discussed in several contexts. Many articles relate the experiences of women to those of girls and young women, from elementary school to college. Others make reference to issues faced by various racial and ethnic minorities, and one specifically addresses challenges for women of color."
"A distinguishing feature of this set is the 'In my own voice' chapters in which authors share their career experiences… Other highlights include a fascinating review of research on self-esteem…as a whole this three-volume set provides broad coverage of many important issues women confront at work. The authors approach their topics from a veariety of perspectives. There are personal stories as well as analyses of institutions. Both quantitative and qualitative research is described. There are clear recommendations aimed at women who seek to advance as well as those who have achieved positions of organizational leadership…This set would provide a stimulating basis for discussion in advanced courses in women's studies, psychology, and business. It would also inform ogranizational leaders as they seek new ways to recruit and retain talented women."
