Synopsis: Offers strategies for women to overcome obstacles to fair treatment and equal opportunity in the workplace, including the glass ceiling, double standards, and the work/family crunch

Review: Women Breaking Through documents the stories of more than 300 women who have taken their careers and created success for themselves and for their organizations -- not in a hostile, adversarial way, but with strategies that benefit women, men, and the bottom line. Women Breaking Through shares the hard-won knowledge of some of the nation's most successful women executives -- women found in workplaces as diverse as Pitney Bowes, Wall Street investment firms, the Goddard Space Flight Center, Pacific Bell, and Stanford University. The demographics studied by Deborah Swiss were representative of the U. S. workplace. For example, 26% were in middle management, 29% in upper management, 25% in senior management, 20% in other positions. Educational backgrounds included M. B. A. , M. A. , M. S. , J. D. , M. D. , and Ph. D. degrees. As a result of her surveys, Swiss recommends as practical strategies for clearing the path for equal opportunity on the job the following: Take responsibility for overturning the gender barriers placed in your path; Focus on a strategy for making a difference in your organization; Make it impossible for your organization to turn you down when you want to do something contrary to long-standing business practice; Keep your eye on your ultimate goal; Trust your business instincts; Choose your battles carefully; Go after the business problem that everyone wants solved but that no one dares assume; Invest in yourself and invest in other women; Behave as though you've already won. Women Breaking Through presents examples of how gender barriers were changed into opportunities for mutual understanding and personal success. For women who want to take charge of their careers with fresh and realistic advice, Women Breaking Through is a "must read". -- Midwest Book Review
