Women account for 46 percent of today's American workforce, and nearly half of the new jobs created go to women. Despite these numbers, however, women still face inequality in terms of pay and opportunity. In addition to unequal treatment on the job, women are vulnerable to sexual harassment—ranging from jokes and snide remarks to unwanted sexual advances. Readers are given a look at the history of women and work, and the attitudes that society held about them. This insightful book explains some of the pivotal legislation, and gives practical advice on how to deal with unequal treatment and sexual harassment in the workplace.
