    Women in the workforce has been an ongoing conversation in my friend group lately. Not only has the coronavirus taken hundreds of thousands of American lives, but this pandemic has also highlighted many systemic inequalities that have been bubbling under the surface for way too long. In September alone, more than 850,000 women left the workforce, 4 times as many as men. (Pallavi Gogoi, NPR) Why do you ask? Working has become almost impossible for many parents during the last 7 months and women ar Women in the workforce has been an ongoing conversation in my friend group lately. Not only has the coronavirus taken hundreds of thousands of American lives, but this pandemic has also highlighted many systemic inequalities that have been bubbling under the surface for way too long. In September alone, more than 850,000 women left the workforce, 4 times as many as men. (Pallavi Gogoi, NPR) Why do you ask? Working has become almost impossible for many parents during the last 7 months and women are facing the brunt of it...and a large part of this is the gender pay gap. In many households, men make more money even if they hold the same job titles. "So when couples have to take an economic decision because women typically earn less, they are the ones who take the step back" (Pallavi Gogoi, NPR), and never has this been more clear than during this 2020 pandemic. Ladies Get Paid could not have come at a better time, as Claire Wasserman takes on how to promote gender equality in the workplace. As the founder of a women's career development organization, Wasserman's writing is clear and approachable and filled with valuable tools on how to broach empowering conversations, negotiating pay, and more. Wasserman's goal is to promote the idea that talking about money and what we are worth is not only important but necessary...and something that many of us still find taboo, and it begins with speaking up. I found this book to be incredibly informative and inspiring and I love the idea that every small step really is significant for all of us. Thank you to Gallery Books for a gifted copy of this book in exchange for my honest feedback.

    I expected Ladies Get Paid to be focused on the financial side of our careers. I went into this book expecting to read about negotiating salary, bonuses, benefits, and total compensation packages but it is so much more than that. It’s full of case studies of women who have faced struggles in the workplace and how they adjusted course to find the path that was best suited for them. They won’t all apply to your specific situation but some of them hit very close to home for me. One of the areas I’ve I expected Ladies Get Paid to be focused on the financial side of our careers.

It’s full of case studies of women who have faced struggles in the workplace and how they adjusted course to find the path that was best suited for them. They won’t all apply to your specific situation but some of them hit very close to home for me. One of the areas I’ve personally struggled with has always been in feeling like I need to keep my head down, focus on my work, and let my results speak for themselves and Ladies Get Paid addressed that exact feeling multiple times. It pushed me to move outside of my comfort zone and speak to women in my life about it. I found that they felt the exact way and now we’re working to push each other to speak up and be more visible in our careers. It might be a tiny thing such as turning on our cameras during remote meetings but that visibility does help! While I won’t say that I felt like there was anything shared in Ladies Get Paid that was stunningly new information it did reinforce very important and powerful messages. It also helped me reach a place where I felt empowered to reclaim my worth and expectations around my career and my goals. I was struggling with imposter syndrome worse than ever before and this book helped push me out of that and into a new level of self-belief and confidence. Each chapter focuses on a different struggle facing women in the workplace and provides questions that make us do a deep dive into ourselves to identify our areas of strength and what is holding us back. I read this as an eBook and found I needed to dig out a new journal to use as a companion so I could answer the questions and make notes. By the end, I found that I had drafted goals for 2021 and made a plan to actively pursue the promotion I’ve been hoping to earn. I feel empowered, which is exactly what I was hoping to feel after reading Ladies Get Paid. I’ve already recommended it to many of my colleagues and women in my professional groups. It’s a great book to have on your bookshelves. I am absolutely certain you’ll find yourself reaching for it again, and again, and again when you need a big dose of female empowerment to get yourself back on track.

    Maybe not the best for those later in their career, but early to mid career professionals will appreciate the direct, actionable suggestions for achieving career goals and raising the bar for women everywhere.

    This is truly a great book for anyone at any point in their career. For me personally, I’m currently in between jobs, and I found this book (especially the first 2/3) incredibly helpful in developing and executing on a networking plan, as well as getting over imposter syndrome and helping with interview prep. I loved how this book included templates and tangible actions you could take, as well as the case studies.

There was lots of highlighting and sticking notes throughout pages of this book. Would highly recommend this one, and I will be revisiting it often!

    This book was the perfect inspiration to kick-off 2021. Claire has a super straightforward tone and offers real-life examples and tangible advice for overcoming common obstacles in the workplace. I especially loved the appendix in the back that talks about policy and what actions can be taken.

    This book really made me take a look at my own career—even though I’m only starting out—and realize that I won’t stand for a job I don’t like, a toxic manager or being undervalued. It was great to hear insights from real-life people and to learn from their stories. An excellent book to empower us as we progress in our careers.

    Does a book cover with hot pink letters and the word “Ladies” in the title give you a certain impression of what you’ll find inside? If you’re anything like me, you may write a book off simply based on its colour scheme alone (why does it have to be pink for god’s sakes?) but if I’m being honest with myself, I love pink, and I begin lots of emails with the salutation “Ladies” so clearly I’m the target audience no matter how loathe I am to admit it. Ladies Get Paid by Claire Wasserman is for work Does a book cover with hot pink letters and the word “Ladies” in the title give you a certain impression of what you’ll find inside? If you’re anything like me, you may write a book off simply based on its colour scheme alone (why does it have to be pink for god’s sakes?) but if I’m being honest with myself, I love pink, and I begin lots of emails with the salutation “Ladies” so clearly I’m the target audience no matter how loathe I am to admit it. Ladies Get Paid by Claire Wasserman is for working women eager to get ahead in their career and willing to put in the effort to accomplish their goals. In a nutshell, this book is about pushing past your comfort zone which is something I struggle with. I love routines and predictability is my jam but the advice in this book got me all fired up so I’m excited to shared it with you. Book Summary Claire Wasserman founded a global community called Ladies Get Paid which advocates for the professional advancement of women. She advises corporations on how to champion diversity and equity in their offices, and she’s a top-notch networker. In this, her first book she includes various case studies of particular women and their experiences of transitioning careers, experiencing various forms of harassment, gunning for a promotion, and negotiating pay raises. She includes easy-to-follow advice with clear reasoning behind it on how to deal with these common roadblocks in the workplace. She weaves in a few examples of her own life, including how and why she started Ladies Get Paid, as well as an inspiring story about a famous young female U.S. politician that has a fiery disposition we all know and love. You’ll have to read the book yourself to experience that little gem for yourself! My Thoughts I appreciate how inclusive Wasserman attempts to make this book. She’s quick to point out that women of colour are routinely discriminated against in the working world, as are working mothers. She deals specifically with these issues in two separate case studies, where the women faced hurdles that would only apply to someone with a child, and someone who is not white. This may seem unnecessary to some, but by placing these problems on a continuum, it made me realize how important it is for me, a white woman, to speak out against any form of discrimination in the workplace, because it helps pave the path for women who come after me. Luckily, I work in an industry that is female-dominated and typically quite flexible when it comes to work-life balance, but not every woman has that luxury, especially in male-dominated environments like law and automotive. And before you point out that things are better than they used to be (which I agree with and acknowledge), there is still a ways to go in many work environments. My female peers, my age or younger have told me stories that made me want to burst into a fiery rage with the injustice, but Wasserman points out that fighting for everyone’s rights in the workplace is our best way to overcome these disparities. To be completely honest, reading this book sort of felt like work in itself, but that’s because I was truly learning things from it that I knew I needed to apply to my own life, so in a way, it was a form of ‘homework’ for me. It’s easy to read books about things that I already do, but reading straight talk about why I need to champion my own skills while negotiating a raise is uncomfortable to me, which is exactly why I needed to read this book. Hell, it’s why I expressed interest in it when I saw it in the publishers catalogue, because I knew it would educate me on a subject I badly needed to throw myself into. If I was really on the ball I’d be able to compare this to the book Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg, because I imagine it deals with very similar topics, but I haven’t read that one – if anyone else has, please let me know in the comments what you thought about it. The best part about this book is its optimism; it doesn’t dwell on the fact that things are harder for women, it quickly establishes it as a fact using clear data and statistics, and then gives us a roadmap to change it. Many people have referred to the pandemic as the ‘she-cession’ because there is overwhelming evidence pointing to the fact that women have had to shoulder the burden of increased childcare while daycares and schools shut down. With that in mind, this book is more important than ever because as the world rights itself again, more women will find themselves with even bigger challenges ahead of them, and it’s support that’s offered in this book that we will need to move forward.

    I wish Goodreads did half stars I sometimes need them. I probably would put this book at 3.5 stars, though I struggle with a rating.

We just have to be a little more creative and work a bit harder to translate it into the world we live in. I found the book to be well laid out, easy to follow and quite enjoyable to read. At times, I found it hard to put down, wanting to learn more about the women that were used to give real life examples of the advice in play. I definitely would recommend this read to anyone trying to get more out of their work life, or life in general. *I received a free copy for my honest review.

    I really enjoyed this book. Claire's writing style of introducing a topic and using a case study to illustrate some of the challenges women face in the work force was very helpful. Claire offers practical and realistic advice for a variety of career challenges in a down to earth and accessible way. Her book was also exhaustively researched and references numerous HBR studies. While not every topic was relevant to me, there was something I could take away from every woman featured. I really enjoyed this book.

    Claire's written a text that is both a helpful guide to getting what you want and need, and inspiring examples of women who have done just that, so that you're not untethered from real life humans who have struggled with the same issues and succeeded. This work is extremely hard, and we're all bringing our own anxieties, biases and fears--and personal experiences, too--into it. Claire's compassionate, tough and concise language helps overcome much of that and put it into practice.

    This book was FANTASTIC. Even if you think you already know about the wage gap, this book goes into so much more than just how to negotiate for a better salary, although that’s certainly part of it. It’s a guide to how to have a more successful and fulfilling career doing what makes you happy in a healthy and supportive environment. Can’t recommend enough!
