Mary Ann Sieghart - The Authority Gap

Mary Ann Sieghart will be talking about her new book The Authority Gap, which provides a startling perspective on the unseen bias at work and in our everyday lives, and revealing 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.

This book that will make us look at the world anew, and give the essential tools to make it happen.
