The 21st century workplace has problems. Massive, systemic problems when it comes to women. We are still backing into a workplace built for the single income, male led household of the 1950s. And that doesn’t work for most people anymore, especially women.
In the Company of Men: How Women Can Succeed in a World Built Without Them takes on the NFL, the world of venture capital, Hollywood, the Catholic Church, food production, and the pornography industry -- just a few of the heavily male-dominated spaces in which women have had to chip away at existing structures to build a better place that works for all.
The stories of the women dismantling and re imagining these spaces will inspire you to reconsider the spaces in which you live and work, and find ways to make them work better for everyone.
"They used to say this is a man’s world. Eileen Scully just wrote the definitive book to say you can kiss that sh*t goodbye!"

“Erudite, powerful and astonishingly practical, Scully’s powerful and invigorating perspective on women in the culture and workplace will change minds and open doors. Scully knows her history, understands her audience and celebrates everyone’s differences while providing her readers with immediately useful ways to shift habits and innovate new ways of thinking.”
