Overview

Expert contributors offer a global perspective on issues women leaders and managers must confront every day, from sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and gender mainstreaming to pay inequity and male perceptions of women leaders. Volume 1, Degrees of Challenge, addresses both overt and subtle biases women encounter in trying to meet their career aspirations. Volume 2, Signs of Solutions, offers concrete, empowering strategies for organizational change intended to eliminate discriminatory treatment of women in the workplace.

The 30 research-based studies here are drawn from nations as disparate as the United States, Turkey, Puerto Rico, Australia, Japan, Great Britain, Israel, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, India, Nepal, Korea, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia to showcase new and emerging solutions worldwide. Accounts from woman managers are also included to provide the reader with real-life examples of how women deal with organizations that welcome them—and those that hinder their performance.
