Executive Sexism: How Men Treat Women at the Highest Levels, Why Law Does Not Protect Them, and What Should Change

Author(s): Wolfe, Elizabeth C.;
Contributors: Wolfe, Elizabeth C.;
Abstract:

In the long shadow of a presidential election rife with charges of sexist actions, this book explains how very common such behavior is among executives, why law doesn't protect victims, and how female professionals can bring change.


• Spotlights the emotional and career fallout for female professionals targeted by executive men's "locker room talk"

• Considers why onlookers don't intervene, known as the "bystander effect"

• Reveals why female victims remain silent and how speaking out can be fatal to their career

• Details why successful action to stop sexism demands an alliance of women and men who support their cause
