5.0 out of 5 stars A Brave Step Toward Equality, August 7, 2008
"Rumors of our Progress have been Greatly Exaggerated" by Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney is a call-to-arms for women, and men who care, to begin the real process of creating equality of the sexes. This excellently researched book hits to the very heart of the problem of hidden prejudice that most people tend to, or perhaps, want to ignore. Maloney is superbly well-versed in the inequities that exist in the marketplace. Through her own personal story and the emotional stories of other women, she points out the subtle obstacles that face women who want both career and family life. Maloney also documents the double standards that apply to women (but not to men) with a careful hand that is both intelligent and feeling. And Maloney stresses that now is time to take real action and push for concrete results so that women are no longer second rate citizens. In fact the book is a guide on how to achieve this. I applaud this book and this visionary woman. Thank you.
