In 2019, women held only 28 percent of global managerial positions. Just 18 percent of Chief Executive Officers are women; and, on average, women spend 2.5 more hours of their time in unpaid care and domestic work than men.
Nevertheless: The Resilience of the Modern Woman tells the stories of anything-but-ordinary women who have overcome these obstacles to become leaders in their schools and fields. You will learn extraordinary stories of strength and perseverance as they confront misogyny, harassment, and discrimination, and reflect on engaging questions such as:
- How can I better take up space myself or help uplift female voices?
- How can we collectively support women through an intersectional lens, especially in fields lacking substantial female leadership?
Nevertheless provides the opportunity to think more deeply about contemporary gender norms and how we can better challenge these power relations in our workplaces, classrooms, and lives; paving the way to equality for women around the world. If you identify as a woman or support women's issues, then this book is for you.
