For a long view on the cultural frameworks and contemporary habits that have brought us to this point, read Professor Mary Beard’s lucid, easy-to-read Women and Power. And to see how it all plays out at the coalface, you probably can’t go past Dear Madam President - based on the reflections, takeaways and future vision of Jennifer Palmieri, Hillary Clinton’s campaign director and Director of Communications in the Obama Whitehouse. We like her take on emotion at work: women can be strong AND emotional.
Read together, these two books make for a clear and brilliant introduction to the reality of what it means for women to have power.
