A provocative and rigorously-researched book which seeks to interrogate our unconscious biases in detail, to look at the way they affect not only how business, politics and other institutions function, but how we function socially in our day-to-day lives.

Reviews

Here is a brilliant manifesto explaining why women are still so underestimated and overlooked in today's world, but how we can also be hopeful for change. * Philippa Perry *
Just in case anyone still thinks the patriarchy is a figment of feminist imagination, this book will prove otherwise. Everyone needs to read The Authority Gap because in order to change our culture, we need to fully recognise the problem. * Bernadine Evaristo *
An impassioned, meticulously argued and optimistic call to arms for anyone who cares about creating a fairer society. * Observer *
Persuasive, arresting, punchy and incisive. * The Sunday Times *
Deeply researched, profoundly thoughtful and a book very much for the here and now: Mary Ann Sieghart's The Authority Gap is the book she was probably born to write. It is both a warning tract for bombastic, dismissive men, and a cheerful manual for all ambitious women. * Andrew Marr *
