The Authority Gap - Why women are still taken less seriously than men

  • Sale
  • €11.95


The Authority Gap provides a startling perspective on the unseen bias at work in our everyday lives, to reveal the scale of the gap that still persists between men and women. Would you believe that US Supreme Court Justices are interrupted four times more often than male ones... 96% of the time by men? Or that British parents, when asked to estimate their child's IQ will place their son at 115 and their daughter at 107?

Marshalling a wealth of data with precision and insight, and including interviews with pioneering women such as Baroness Hale, Mary Beard and Bernadine Evaristo, Mary Ann exposes unconscious bias in this fresh feminist take on how to address and counteract systemic sexism in ways that benefit us all.

Includes interviews with pioneering women such as:

Baroness Hale
Mary Beard
Bernadine Evaristo
Mary McAleese
Julia Gillard
Dolly Alderton and Pandora Sykes
Cherie Blair
Liz Truss
Amber Rudd
Frances Morris
Laura Bates
