Sex, lies and gender inequality at work

There aren't enough women. They aren't ambitious enough. They aren't skilled for senior jobs. Women need to choose between their careers and their kids. Flexibility means non-performance. Workplaces are meritocracies. Is this really what the Australian and international research and evidence on women, work and flexibility suggests? Rae addresses popular myths and lies about workplace gender inequality, and the ultimate impact on careers and bottom line performance.
