In the age of the iPhone, where everything can be captured and shared on the Internet, and with a single click, the word “women” has become a verb.
And in the era of digital media, where it’s easier to share your feelings and emotions, it can be easier to find the perfect phrase to express your emotions.
But while women are everywhere, and they do make up a substantial percentage of the population, they’re not as ubiquitous as you might think.
As a result, when it comes to topics like leadership, the field of management is almost completely dominated by men.
Here are 10 books about women and gender in business that you should definitely read before you get your first job, regardless of your gender.
The Art of Leadership by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of The Art Of Women.
“This book, along with Gilbert’s other works of fiction and nonfiction, is an incredible exploration of the dynamics and opportunities of women and men in business, and its scope is immense.”

The 4 Rules of Engagement by Stephanie Hannon, author, Lean In: The Power of Women and Masculinity.
“The book’s title speaks for itself, but it also gives a few more insight into what she has to say about how she sees the world, as well as what makes her tick.”
The 6-Hour Workweek by Sherry Turkle, cofounder and co-chief operating officer of LinkedIn.
“As one of the youngest women in Silicon Valley, Turkle has seen how leadership is more than just being on time or doing the right thing.
