Read full description of the books:



Why do so few women occupy positions of power and prestige? Virginia Valian uses
concepts and data from psychology, sociology, economics, and biology to explain the disparity in the
professional advancement of men and women. According to Valian, men and women alike have implicit
hypotheses about gender differences -- gender schemas -- that create small sex differences in
characteristics, behaviors, perceptions, and evaluations of men and women. Those small imbalances
accumulate to advantage men and disadvantage women. The most important consequence of gender schemas
for professional life is that men tend to be overrated and women
underrated.

Valian's goal is to make the invisible factors that retard women's
progress visible, so that fair treatment of men and women will be possible. The book makes its case
with experimental and observational data from laboratory and field studies of children and adults,
and with statistical documentation on men and women in the professions. The many anecdotal examples
throughout provide a lively counterpoint.
