Description - New Soft War on Women by Caryl Rivers

For the first time in history, women make up half the educated labour force and are earning the majority of advanced degrees. It should be the best time ever for women and's not. Storm clouds are gathering and the worst thing is that most women don't have a clue what could be coming. In large part this is because the message they're being fed is that they now have it made. But do they? In THE NEW SOFT WAR ON WOMEN, respected experts on gender issues and the psychology of women, Caryl Rivers and Rosalind C. Barnett, argue that an insidious war of subtle biases and barriers is being waged that continues to marginalise women. Although women have made huge strides in recent years, these gains have not translated into money and influence. Consider the following: * Women with MBAs earn, on average, less than their male counterparts in their first job out of business school. * Female doctors earn, on average, 39 percent less than male doctors. * Female financial analysts take in 35 percent less and female chief executives one quarter less than men in similar positions. In this eye-opening book, Rivers and Barnett offer women the real facts as well as tools for combating the "soft war" tactics that prevent them from advancing in their careers. With women now central to the economy, determining to a large degree whether it thrives or stagnates, this is one war no one can afford for them to lose.
