During a recent overnight in the hospital (nothing big) I had inspiring conversations with my (all young) nurses. One of them asked me for reading recommendations. After I shared it, I thought why not share this with others. Here you go with a few comments...
MUST CITES (my stacked go-to academic must cites)
Women & Leadership are the top Harvard Biz Review articles, quick and meaty
Darkness Now Visible is a quick depressing, albeit hopeful, reading about patriarchy
Invisible Women is chock full of stats
Rage Becomes Her speaks to how women mask their justified anger, it's intense
COULD NOT RESIST (ones I could not resist owning that fill my bookshelves)
Women Who Launch is a fun read, little clips about women from across time and disciplines doing amazing things
Unfinished Business is Slaughter's response to Lean-In, it’s marvelous
Dog Whistles is not about gender, it tackles race and it's depressingly great
Rosin’s the End of Men is an uplifting (to a degree) book and she’s a energizing writer
Loved Cokie Roberts (RIP) and this is, of course, historical politics
Deborah Tannen writes about gendered communication styles
I would love to know what you think about these and am open to other suggestions.
gender, gender equity, women's leadership
