            Women and Leadership: Real Lives, Real Lessons

            Women and Leadership presents a lively and readable analysis of how gender impacts the access of women to positions of political leadership, the perceptions of them as leaders, the trajectory of their leadership and the circumstances in which it comes to an end. Analysing the les...sons learned from these women, Julia Gillard and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala provide a road map of essential knowledge to inspire all of us. Women leaders often have biographies published but the approach taken to analysing gender is not consistent. Authors may shy away from dealing deeply with gender questions fearing a backlash if a book is seen to be whinging in tone. Women and Leadership fills that void and takes a consistent and comprehensive approach to teasing out what is different for women leaders. The same interview questions were used to examine each woman's journey in leadership and their real world experiences were tested against the authors' hypothesis of how gender impacts leadership. Resulting in an action agenda for change that will make it more likely women leaders are treated fairly and with no gender bias. Featuring- Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Clinton, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Theresa May, Michelle Bachelet, Joyce Banda, Erna Solberg, Christine Lagarde and more.

            In France, criticizing oneselves is a national sport, even more important than football. But there's one thing every foreigner does need to understand if they ever plan to spend some time with a French person. Or even more dangerously, marry a French person. Or, pure madness, liv...e in France with lots of French persons. French people hate it when foreigners do criticize them. Immediately this provokes a strange physical phenomenon. The heart starts pumping a little bit faster, reminiscences of the Marseillaise are heard by their gallic ears, and they reach mentally for the sword. For years now, French women have become a target for all sorts of representations. In fact, the number of books written about French women is becoming a publishing market in itself. No year goes by without a new book about them. And yet, in spite of her reserves in differentiating French women from other women, Marie Le Moel found some aspects can't be so easily dismissed. Of course, women, and men, all around the world, share similarities. And yet, they remain a product of their environment. French environment, culture and rich history, has produced a certain type of men and women. It has produced, too, a certain type of relationship between the two genders, where seduction and games play, still now, an important part. And in order to better fight the stereotypes, one has to try to put the finger on what constitutes a modern French woman, and why she has become, for many, an example.

            'For me these Ormond College women were, and are, the first voices of the revolution that is #MeToo in Australia.' Twenty-five years ago, Australia was in the grip of another debate about sex and power. The Master of Ormond College at the University of Melbourne had been acquitte...d of indecent assault after complaints by two female students. Helen Garner's bestselling book about the case, The First Stone, polarised readers over whether the students had been right to take their allegations to the law. Was the feminist movement poisoning gender relations? In Generation F, the young award-winning journalist Virginia Trioli offered a vigorous, incisive and compelling argument for the ongoing need for feminism, while exploring her own bewilderment and anger. She described the real state of sexual harassment, violence, the workplace and the law in Australia: how most women just copped it, but those who felt able to confront it needed all the support they could get. Now - as women around the world speak up about how sexual harassment has destroyed their work, families and lives - Trioli revisits that cultural moment in a new foreword, and in a new afterword considers the situation women face today. Dismayingly, her original text is just as relevant, and her call to action just as powerful.

            Vida Jane Mary Goldstein, feminist and suffragist, was born at Portland, Victoria. Her father was an anti-suffragist, but Jacob Goldstein supported his daughters to be economically and intellectually independent. Vida's with her mother collected signatures for the huge Woman Suff...rage Petition. In the 1890s she became involved in various social welfare activities and attended Victorian parliamentary sessions where she learned procedure while campaigning for a wide variety of reformist legislation. In 1899 she lead the radical women's movement in Victoria, and that year made her first public-speaking appearance to advocate the vote for woman. In 1902 she travelled to the United States of America to speak at the International Woman Suffrage Conference, was elected secretary, gave evidence in favour of woman suffrage to a committee of the United States Congress and attended the International Council of Women Conference. Australian women had been granted the Federal vote in 1902 and on her return from America she was one of four women who were the first in the British Empire to be nominated and to stand for election to a national parliament when she campaigned as an Independent candidate for the Senate in 1903. Through the newspaper she founded and edited, Woman's Sphere, and by lecture tours around Victoria, she campaigned untiringly for the State suffrage which was won in 1908. Vida returned to national politics and made four more attempts to gain election to Federal parliament- always as an Independent Woman Candidate. She was outspokenly opposed to capitalism, supporting production for use not profit, and public control of public utilities. In August 1909 Vida launched her second newspaper, the weekly Woman Voter, of which she was owner-editor. Vida Goldstein was the only Australian woman suffragist to gain an international reputation. In February 1911 she visited England at the invitation of the Women's Social and Political Union and her speeches drew huge crowds. D

            Lucid and wrenching...Forward puts [Wambach's] achievement in context with painful and beautiful candor. NPR Forward isthe powerful storyof an athlete who has inspired girls all over the world to believe in themselves. Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, New York Times Bestselling aut...hor of Lean In This is the best memoir I ve read by an athlete since Andre Agassi s Open. Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take Abby Wambach has always pushed the limits of what is possible. At age seven she was put on the boys soccer team. At age thirty-five she would become the highest goal scorer male or female in the history of soccer, capturing the nation s heart with her team s 2015 World Cup Championship. Called an inspiration and badass by President Obama, Abby has become a fierce advocate for women s rights and equal opportunity, pushing to translate the success of her team to the real world. As she reveals in this searching memoir, Abby s professional success often masked her inner struggle to reconcile the various parts of herself: ferocious competitor, daughter, leader, wife. With stunning candor, Abby shares her inspiring and often brutal journey from girl in Rochester, New York, to world-class athlete. Far more than a sports memoir, Forward is gripping tale of resilience and redemption and a reminder that heroism is, above all, about embracing life s challenges with fearlessness and heart.
