Women and Leadership: Real Lives, Real Lessons by Julia Gillard and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
An inspirational and practical book written by two high-achieving women (one being our first and only female prime minister), sharing the experience and advice of some of our most extraordinary women leaders, in their own words.
Women and Leadership presents a lively and readable analysis of the influence of gender on women’s access to positions of leadership, the perceptions of them as leaders, the trajectory of their leadership and the circumstances in which it comes to an end. By presenting the lessons that can be learned from women leaders, Julia and Ngozi provide a road map of essential knowledge to inspire us all, and an action agenda for change that allows women to take control and combat gender bias.
This book features heavyweights including Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Clinton, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Theresa May, Michelle Bachelet, Joyce Banda, Erna Solberg, Christine Lagarde and more.
"Confession: I have a rule that I must read a book before including it on the Tell Her website but I made an exception for this one. Once I heard about this book and heard Julia Gillard discuss the content of it on her press tour, I knew immediately that it had to be on the Launch List. This book reminds of The Moment of Lift - sharing stories from women across the globe and it is a must-read! Looks like we will be reading it together!" - Carly, Chief Book Officer of Tell Her.
