On the shelf

I’m currently compiling a list of suggested books on the issue of women and leadership to add to the blog; once it’s available, I hope you’ll find it useful, and I’d welcome suggestions of other titles.

One of the books I reference is “The Feminine Mistake” by Leslie Bennetts, published in Spring 2007.  Some of my PwC US colleagues were lucky enough to hear her read from and discuss the book in New York earlier week, when she was a guest at a Women’s Networking Circles event, hosted by the US Metro region group.  I believe that there was a waiting list to join the event – and I’m not surprised! 

For a flavour of the book and of Leslie’s style and passion on the topic of economic independence and how women and their families benefit from female participation in the workplace, here’s a link to a Huffington Post article on this topic, and also to an article from April 2007 in the UK Times newspaper.

One book title which will definitely be added to the list once it’s published in January 2008 is “Women Mean Business” by Alison Maitland and Avivah Wittenberg-Cox.  I read a synopsis of the book when I was at the Women’s Forum earlier this month, and have just received some sample chapters to read and review.  I’ll write some more about this in a future posting.
