Have you ever rejoiced as women raved about your product in research only to discover months and millions of lost dollars later that they've all changed their minds? Ever wonder why even successful fashion retailers misfire with women over 40? Or if moms are really as "squeaky green" as they claim to be? If women say they're tired of seeing supermodels in ads, do they mean it? (Would you even know it if they didn't?)

Get ready to hear the whole truth about the Half Truths that can undermine your best-laid plans with women. For the past decade as partners in the powerhouse consultancy Just Ask a Woman, Mary Lou Quinlan, Jen Drexler, and Tracy Chapman have been changing the way marketers listen to women.

to the Whole Truths that drive brand leadership, relevance, and growth.

Inside you'll find

  • The five key motivators that drive women's Half Truths and how to overcome them
