WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Reflecting on her own path-breaking career experiences, Dee Dee Myers surveys the issues facing women in Washington, as well as other leadership roles. She challenges audiences to imagine a not-too-distant future in which increasing numbers of women reach the top ranks of politics, business, science, and academia. Sharing moments from her tenure in the Clinton administration and her work as a political analyst, media commentator, and former consultant to NBC's The West Wing, Myers assesses the crucial but long-ignored strengths that female leaders bring to the table. "Women tend to be better communicators, better listeners, better at forming consensus," Myers argues. She explains that in a highly competitive and increasingly fractious world, women possess the kind of critical problem-solving skills that are urgently needed to break down barriers, build understanding, and create the best conditions for peace.
