"Michelle King has written a book that is more than necessary today. With its clarity and common sense, its passion and practicality, it is a vital piece calling for a workplace that actually works for women. Michelle provides actions to take that do not succumb to the notion of "fixing" women... Michelle writes with elegance and precision, inviting us all in to be better informed and better understood."

Amy Poehler's Smart Girl

"So much about the world of work-from workplace culture to our definition of success-was created by men, and it's not working for women or indeed for men. And it's no surprise that women pay a disproportionately high price for their participation. That's why it (this book) is so important. It's a passionate, practical roadmap for addressing inequality and finally making our workplaces work for women."

Arianna Huffington, Author and Founder

The Huffington Post and Thrive Global

Billie Jean King, Founder
