Recommends it for: working women
This is the foundation for working women's confidence - its easy style will confirm what you've always known about women's innate leadership strengths. For those new to the feminist movement or wanting a good refresher, it will inspire you anew to root for women in positions of leadership, to criticize their feminine characteristics less harshly, and to open your eyes to the revolution women in top ranks compel.

I just read this for school. I get it, more women need to be in power. But what everyone seems to be foregoing here is that women leaders can be just as evil and imperialist as men, sometimes more so if they've got something to prove (e.g., Thatcher). I have a feeling it's going to be a long semester.

I felt this could have given more tips on what we can do. I felt too often she repeated how women are taken for granted as being just wives; but it was inspirational to hear what some of the women accomplished.

A few good points, but mostly anecdotal observations it seemed. But it raised my awareness to traits and behaviors and how they can be viewed.
AWESOME! Not at all a feminist rant, but an inspired, frank look at females in leadership.
Very good and inspiring.
