What Works for Women at Work is a comprehensive and insightful guide for mastering office politics as a woman. Distilling over 35 years of research, Joan C. Williams and Rachel Dempsey identify four patterns that can act as obstacles to success: Prove-It-Again, the Tightrope, the Maternal Wall, and the Tug of War. Applying academic research, interviews, and personal anecdotes, the authors describe how these patterns apply to working women and offer strategies on how individual women can best combat them.
