About the Author

Marcy Miroff Rothenberg writes about issues, movements and politics with an eye to their impact on women's rights and opportunities, and blogs regularly at Although she never landed her dream job—the one held by her media idol, CJ Cregg, Press Secretary to Josiah Bartlet on "The West Wing"—she's written Ms. Nice Guy Lost: Here's How Women Can Win so that today's girls and young women can become whoever and whatever they choose to be...and so their parents and mentors can help them get there.

Although it seems that women have made great strides in terms of the rights and opportunities that are now afforded them, this book makes the case that there is still much work in this area that needs to be done. With personal stories and well researched documentation, the author packs each page with statistics, observations, and facts that prove just how far women still lag behind men in their treatment and compensation. Her points are made with numerous facts, and not anger, to support each claim and provides an education on the subject that should be required reading in every school! Thankfully, she not only chronicles the situation about the treatment of women but also provides innumerable actions that can be taken to make things better! You can just feel her optimism that the time is now right for this situation to be changed, and that we are all empowered with the ability to help make it so. In the end, this is a hopeful read that charts the course for our daughters and granddaughters to find themselves winners in all aspects of their lives.
