Sorry, but consider me still slightly underwhelmed. Yet I want to be positive. Discrimination exists and it shouldn’t. As a father of a young girl, who is being taught she has the power to do anything she wants to do in the future, I am far from being a reactionary male chauvinist pig. I am not convinced that books like this, which purport to show you how “… to claim power and respect, conquer your internal barriers, and change the world by helping other women do the same” are the solution and saviour they promise. They might be harmless, yet they are not as multifaceted and ground breaking as they would like to believe they are.
Not everything is bad. Some of the book had interesting bits and pieces but boy, did it feel padded and slow to boil in rather a lot of places! One doesn’t think that things are that different in the United States - land of the free - compared to how things are in Europe. Is this really true in 2015? “Yet, for many of us (women) our relationship with power continues to be fraught with insecurity, ambivalence, and confusion. We want it but do not know how to get it and are afraid to admit we seek it. When we have it, we hide it. We are often afraid to use it because our society punishes powerful women in subtle and not-so-subtle ways,” notes the author. Is this reviewer somehow punishing a powerful, successful woman in a not-so-subtle way? Unlikely.
Certainly as a male the success of women doesn’t make me feel threatened. On the contrary!Read more ›
