"If you're a woman intent on moving up at work, read How Women Can Make it Work. This strategy-packed, deeply insightful book empowers young women to navigate the workplace terrain with savvy. Frank, funny, and most of all reliable." (Selena Rezvani, author of The Next Generation of Women Leaders, Columnist, The Washington Post online)
"How Women Can Make it Work is a knowledge-packed yet practical (and fun) guide for working women. King and Knight artfully condense all of the most up-to-date social science research into useful tips for how young women can thrive into today's workplace." (Victoria Brescoll, Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior, Yale School of Management)
"King and Knight perform an incisive examination of contemporary gender politics at work in their guide for women entering and navigating their way through a professional world in which more doors than ever stand open, but are all too often hung on creaky, rusted hinges. Even at a time in which opportunities for women abound, women enter workplaces and encounter gender based resistance and a myriad of challenges. From job applications to office communication to cubicle decoration to child and elder-care and the politics of changing your name, King and Knight have covered it all, offering an impressive compendium of information and analysis that clarifies and corrects misperceptions about working women, and offers crucial advice on how to get beyond the frustrating challenges still placed before us on the road to professional parity." (Rebecca Traister, Author of Big Girls Don't Cry: The Election that Changed Everything for American Women)
