Overview

The 21st-century workplace is broken, with massive, systemic problems when it comes to women. We are still backing into a workplace built for the single income, male-led household of the 1950s. And it’s not working—especially for women.

In the Company of Men: How Women Can Succeed in a World Built Without Them takes on the NFL, the world of venture capital, Hollywood, the Catholic Church, food production, and the pornography industry—just a few of the heavily male-dominated spaces in which women have had to chip away at existing structures to build a better place that works for all.

The stories of the women dismantling and re-imagining these spaces will inspire you to reconsider the spaces in which you live and work, and find ways to make them work better for everyone.

When CBS Television promoted Ethel Winant to vice president, she became the first female TV executive in history. But when her office moved up to the executive floor, there was no women’s restroom, and the men’s room door didn’t have a lock. She learned to leave her high heels outside the men’s room door to indicate she was in there.
