Nine to Five: How Gender, Sex, and Sexuality Continue to Define the American Workplace Paperback – May 3, 2016
"The Farmer's Son" by John Connell
"A fascinating portrait of a single sensibility, a born noticer, someone on whom nothing is lost, observing birth and death, the landscape, and his own heritage." ―Colm Tóibín, author of "Brooklyn" Learn more

"If you think that gender inequality is a thing of the past, guess again. In this broad-ranging book, Joanna Grossman combines her extraordinary legal expertise about sex discrimination in the workplace with a brilliant diagnostic eye for how specific workplace practices continue to maintain an unfair and unequal playing field for women. Drawing on dozens of specific cases of mistreatment of women, Grossman shows the myriad ways in which society expects women to enter the workplace at their own risk and on someone else's terms ... and be grateful for it. Many chapters, written contemporaneously with the case reported on, are followed by updates showing how the law continues to evolve or, more often than not, how it remains the same. The book epitomizes the power of concrete examples to test generalizations about how far we have come toward gender equality, and how far we have left to go."
Katharine T. Bartlett, A. Kenneth Pye Professor of Law, Duke University School of Law
"Despite a half century of laws and policies on gender equality, the United States is a significant distance from achieving it. Nine to Five is a highly insightful and lively account of what stands in the way. Joanna Grossman brings wit, eloquence and a wealth of knowledge to the persistent problems that women confront in American workplaces. Her proposed solutions redefine the agenda in our struggle for truly equal opportunity."
Deborah Rhode, Professor of Law, and Director, Center on the Legal Profession, Stanford University
"Joanna L. Grossman's Nine to Five offers an insightful and wonderfully readable introduction to how the law governs sex, sexuality, and gender identity in the workplace. The book makes clear that gender continues to shape the policies and practices that Americans encounter at work. Nine to Five is a valuable resource for policymakers, students, scholars, employers, and employees."
Jill Elaine Hasday, Distinguished McKnight University Professor and Centennial Professor of Law, University of Minnesota Law School
In a lively and readable style, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the role gender continues to play in the American workplace. Essays focus on defining sex discrimination, sexual harassment, discrimination against pregnant women and mothers, pay inequity, and the glass ceiling.
