Closing the Leadership Gap: Why Women Can and Must Help Run the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An impassioned examination of the vital importance of women in leadership roles — in politics as well as business — by a renowned women's issues advocate.

Insightful and inspiring, Closing the Leadership Gap is a call to action for the increased presence of women in powerful leadership positions in our country. A leading women's advocate and cofounder of the White House Project, Marie C. Wilson argues that while our nation sits on a world spinning with crises from terrorism and weapons of mass destruction to a fragile economy and corporate greed, half of its natural resources — women — have not been tapped for their uniquely valuable contribution to solving these problems that only they can provide.

Rich with historical context and supported by a wealth of current data and innovative research, this book explains chapter by chapter the leadership gap between women and men and the deeply ingrained cultural factors that continue to create resistance to women at the top. It also explores how the new insights and strategies women are using to leverage their power of authority, ambition, ability, and authenticity have been denied women and how they are claiming these vital qualities for themselves. Written with passion and documented with lively behind-the-scenes stories from the trenches, Closing the Leadership Gap argues for women's leadership in all spheres and offers steps to get us there.

Review:

"Although sometimes prone to over-generalize female values, this is a persuasive and logical text that is less about women running the world then allowing them to have a meaningful role in its custody." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This is a polemic on women's issues, but a polemic communicated with passion....A thoughtful compilation with some not-so-specific guidelines for change." Booklist
