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
  • 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
  • In The Authority Gap, Mary Ann Sieghart combines an absorbing review of the contemporary evidence on the systematic undervaluing of women with some powerful new insights. Whether you know a little or a lot about sexism and misogyny, there is much to learn from this book, including some very practical tips on creating change that you can implement the minute after you turn the last page.

    Julia Gillard, Former Prime Minister of Australia
  • Fascinating, powerful...the subject is very close to my heart.

    Elif Shafak
  • 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
  • Fascinating, thorough, empowering... One of those books that takes something ubiquitous, that many have become desensitised to, and slowly exposes its far-reaching implications.

    Guardian
  • Hugely exciting.

    Emily Maitlis
  • At last here is a credible roadmap that is capable of taking women from the margins to the centre by bridging the authority gap that holds back even the best and most talented of women. Read this and weep at what we are wasting. Read this and believe we can fly on two wings and soon.

    Mary McAleese, Former President of Ireland
