Why Are So Few Women in Positions of Power?
‘Man Made gives a graphic, very realistic and convincing account of the injustices that women still endure in our society. The information is well researched, revealing and, often, frankly breathtaking. Anyone concerned about equality and civil rights should study the radical proposals set out clearly in this very readable and truly illuminating call to action.’
Baroness Kinnock, former Foreign Office Minister and MEP
Eva Tutchell and John Edmonds’ Man-Made looks at women in business, government and not-for-profit organizations to explore the reasons behind – and the solutions to – the gross underrepresentation of women in leadership positions. Along the way, the authors look at the value of work for women and vice versa; how women are seen and how they are expected to behave; the impact of prejudice and discrimination; how some women have succeeded against the odds.
The text draws on the authors’ interviews with over 100 successful UK and international business women from across sectors, academic research, and the authors' own experience to offer a rigorous and convincing analysis, along with a pragmatic set of recommendations for change.
