Title: Women and leadership
Author: Julia Gillard
Summary:Almost every year there is new research and new findings in understanding the way people see and treat women in leadership positions compared to their male counterparts. This inspirational and practical book written by Julia Gillard and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, two extremely high-achieving women, who have reached the absolute top of their fields, sharing their experiences and advice as well as more from some of our most inspirational women leaders (including Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Christine Lagarde, Michelle Bachelet, and Theresa May). As a result of their broad experience on the world stage in politics, economics and global not-for-profits, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Julia Gillard have some strong ideas about the impact of gender on the treatment of leaders. Women and Leadership takes a consistent and comprehensive approach to teasing out what is different for women who lead. Women make up fewer than ten per cent of national leaders worldwide, and behind this eye-opening statistic lies a pattern of unequal access to power. Through conversations with some of the world's most powerful and interesting women. Women and Leadership presents a lively and readable analysis of the influence of gender on women’s access to positions of leadership, the perceptions of them as leaders, the trajectory of their leadership and the circumstances in which it comes to an end. By presenting the lessons that can be learned from women leaders, Julia and Ngozi provide a road map of essential knowledge to inspire us all, and an action agenda for change that allows women to take control and combat gender bias. A powerful call to action for achieving equality in leadership.
