The Authority Gap

Mary Ann Sieghart

Imagine living in a world in which you were routinely patronized by women.


Imagine having your views ignored or your expertise frequently challenged by them.

Imagine trying to speak up in a meeting, only to be talked over by female colleagues.

Imagine subordinates resisting you as a boss, merely because of your gender.

Imagine people always addressing the woman you are with before you.

Now imagine a world in which the reverse of this is true.

The Authority Gap provides a startling perspective on the unseen bias at work in our everyday lives, to reveal the scale of the gap that still persists between men and women. Marshalling a wealth of data with precision and insight, and based on interviews with pioneering women including Baroness Hale, Mary Beard and Janet Yellen, this is a fresh feminist take on how to address and counteract systemic sexism in ways that benefit us all.
