FAIR SHAKE Women and the Fight to Build a Just Economy

by | Read by Janina Edwards

Business & Finance • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Janina Edwards presents the problem of a business practice that predominates in most current industries. Three legal scholars call out the "lean-in" philosophy of female success. They also set out to investigate why gender-based wage gaps stubbornly persist--and have even gotten worse--despite women's predominance in higher education for decades. The audiobook successfully profiles real women who have struggled for equality in a variety of companies--sometimes even suing their employers for fair wages. The audiobook is brimming with facts and statistics, which, while important, are on the dry side for hours of listening. Nonetheless, Edwards illuminates the appalling inequity in pay and career advancement that is still the norm in large sectors of the economy and offers salient solutions for the future.
