(ISBN 1845424379)

Synopsis
This accessible and original book relates the fascinating story of successful women across the Americas: women who are managers, business owners, university professors and administrators, doctors, lawyers and government ministers. 

Based on extensive research, including more than 1,100 surveys and 300 interviews of women from Argentina, Barbados, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Jamaica, Mexico, St Vincent and the Grenadines and the USA, the book aims to explain what these women have in common and how they differ. The workplace challenges and barriers to professional success faced by women are also analysed. Seeking to capture the voices of the women themselves, the authors also from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures across the Americas' attempt to explain success in the face of personal, social, organizational, cultural and economic obstacles facing women everywhere. 

Successful Professional Women of the Americas will provide fascinating reading for academics, students and researchers focusing on gender studies or business and management. Professional women and managers worldwide will also find the book to be of great interest.
