- Eye Opening
Journalist Alicia Menendez dissects the challenges facing women in the workplace and the public sphere as they try to navigate the passage between the rock of “likeability” and the hard place of leadership qualities. Using research and anecdotes, she discusses why people see women who exhibit strength and achievement as cold and underhanded, and why they perceive warm, generous women as weak and incompetent. Menendez underscores the personal and economic cost of these biases and outlines how businesses and society must change the way they evaluate and treat women.
