Description

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.
