Are women victims? Or can they hold their own in the workplace? Women's inequality in society is a standard refrain in the popular media and thus in the conventional wisdom. The purveyors of that point of view assume that women are systematically discriminated against on all levels of society, especially in the workplace, and that this discrimination has kept them from reaching equality with men. But the facts show otherwise.

To counter the triple myths of the glass ceiling, the wage gap, and the pink ghetto - the pillars that support arguments in favor of sex-based affirmative action - the authors provide detailed data in graphs and tables to show that in key areas of education and employment women have substantially achieved equality. Women earn over 50 percent of bachelor's and master's degrees; they are moving into previously male-dominated professions; and when education and experience are accounted for, their positions and compensation are similar to men's.

This book, now in its second addition, presents new and updated data to illustrate women's economic progress in America.
