    There are lots of useful tips and the last chapter on how to avoid (unintended) patronising behaviours is very useful. However, I can't help but feel that some sections of the book encourage women to go the extra mile to just reach baseline equality. I know one has to be pragmatic but I was hoping to find advice on how to disrupt certain habits rather than comply. Still very useful and a reference handbook to go back at different stages of your career.

    Uninspiring, how much more women are supposed to bend to be considered equal to men.

    It is good support as reminder how to a woman can and should behave at work. It has been proven that majority of woman at work do not know how to negotiate or show valuable are their work. This Guide will walk you through different real situation and provided way how to handle, respond it. Also last part of the book, it is for manager whom works with woman, and they should built a professional and responsible relationship .

    I picked this book up at the airport before I went on a trip and I thought no time like the present to learn more about the workforce. While I am still in college this was an interesting read to learn about how women are viewed in society as well as how to advocate for yourself. I read this while I was traveling so I had a lot of free time. However, as mentioned in other reviews, you don't have to read the entire book, you can just read the chapters you need at the time.

    It’s still very relevant! I like the cases talked in the book. It’s served as a good reminder of some social norms happening at work place that I sometimes tend to forget while focusing too much on the work itself....

    Used this as a reference for a lightning talk I was giving, and found it to be extremely helpful. Near the end I skipped a few articles, but overall a great read, especially the first two sections.

    Well curated articles on a variety of topics. There’s no need to read cover to cover; you can dip in and out of the topics that suit.

    How women rise is still my fav women in business book Really interesting articles - especially at the start of the book - and didn’t expect you to dismantle the whole system but work with it. The article format meant it didn’t have a clear narrative or conclusion but still really interesting
