When a man strongly asserts his point of view and autonomy, he is hailed as a strong, competent leader. When a woman exhibits the same executive qualities, she is labeled a brusque, overbearing bitch. This is not really news anymore, is it? Yet these unfair perceptions are a key reason why only five percent of Fortune 500 company CEOs are women. How can women leaders break through that brick wall of ´´bitch?´´ How can they manage gender expectations and still successfully climb the corporate ladder? Breaking Through ´´Bitch´´ takes an innovative, sometimes controversial approach, using stories from executives at the highest corporate levels to show how women can hone their innate skills, rise to the top, and be effective, outstanding leaders. It addresses head-on why women cannot and should not ´´act like men.´´ Breaking Through ´´Bitch´´: •Describes the unique profile of behaviors that top women leaders have in common. •Reveals why such stereotypically feminine characteristics as nurturing, empathy, and inclusiveness are the keys to power, not signs of weakness. Shows how these characteristics can be equally effective for men in our fast-changing world. Breaking Through ´´Bitch´´ empowers women to be their best selves, overcome stereotypes, and lead! 1.

Whether or not we like to admit it, pop culture is a lens through which we alternately view and shape the world around us. When it comes to feminism, pop culture aids us in translating feminist philosophies, issues, and concepts into everyday language, making them relevant and relatable. In Feminism and Pop Culture, author and cofounder of Bitch magazine Andi Zeisler traces the impact of feminism on pop culture (and vice versa) from the 1940s to the present and beyond. With a comprehensive overview of the intertwining relationship between women and pop culture, this book is an ideal introduction to discussing feminism and daily life. 1. Language: English.

The Broken Heart Surgeon is what they call me. TV viewers loved seeing a top-flight heart surgeon with a loving family, a man who had everything, make a single tragic mistake, something so minor that if I had done it in a bar I would have gotten laid or bitch-slapped. Who in the world would have ever thought it would have led to this? I know I didn´t. Doing twenty years in a maximum-security prison. Surrounded by people I paid a great deal of money to live away from on the outside. So this is how it ended. Me behind bars. Explaining to you everything that happened in the middle will take a while, but what the hell does it matter? Telling you how it all began is easy. I remember it like I remember my name, like the first time I made love to my wife, like the day my first child was born. It all started simply enough. It all started with just a little tweak. 1.

´´[ The Austen Playbook ] is the apotheosis of why the romance genre exists.” — Entertainment Weekly ´´Theater fans will devour this lovely contemporary romance.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review) ´´Grade: A, for Absolutely Delightful and Adorable and Also I read it twice in a row.” — Smart Bitches, Trashy Books In which experienced West End actress Freddy Carlton takes on an Austen-inspired play, a scandal at a country estate, an enthusiastic search for a passion outside of acting...and the (some people might say icy*) heart of London´s most feared theater critic. *if those people were being nice Freddy Carlton knows she should be focusing on her lines for The Austen Playbook, a live-action TV event where viewers choose the outcome of each scene, but her concentration´s been blown. The palatial estate housing the endeavor is now run by the rude (brilliant) critic who´s consistently slammed her performances of late. James ´´Griff” Ford-Griffin has a penchant for sarcasm, a majestic nose and all the sensitivity of a sledgehammer. She can´t take her eyes off him. Griff can hardly focus with a contagious joy fairy flitting about near him, especially when Freddy looks at him like that. His only concern right now should be on shutting down his younger brother´s well-intentioned (disastrous) schemes—or at the very least on the production (not this one) that might save his family home from the banks. Instead all he can think of is soft skin and vibrant curls. As he´s reluctantly dragged into her quest to rediscover her passion for the stage and Freddy is drawn into his research on a legendary theater star, the adage about appearances being deceiving proves abundantly true. It´s the unlikely start of something enormous...but a single revelation about the past could derail it all. One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you´re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It´s a promise!
