About this product
- DescriptionFor most of history, being female defined the limits of a woman's achievements. But w, women are successful careerists equal to men. In Norway, women legally must constitute a third of all boards; in America, women have gone from 3% of practising lawyers in 1970 to 40% today, and over half of all law students. These changes are revolutionary - but t universal: the 'sisterhood' of working women is deeply divided. Making ermous strides in the workplace are young, educated, full-time professionals who have put children on hold. But for a second group of women this is unattainable: instead, they work part-time, earn less, are concentrated in heavily feminised occupations like cleaning and gain income and self-worth from having children young. As these two groups move ever further apart, shared gender longer automatically creates interests in common with other women. The XX Factor lifts the curtain on these social, cultural and ecomic schisms.
