'This book will help you to work out what you want, communicate it, get others to work with you, and advance your cause.'
Joan Kirner and Moira Rayner passionately believe that women must know their goals and learn how to achieve them. Two of Australia's most prominent public figures and community activists, they've lived this book. They've had power, lost power, reclaimed power. And now they've turned their experiences - and the stories of many other women - into a punchy, down-to-earth, tactical guide to:
developing self-esteem and assertiveness
being true to your own values
organising your finances and your personal life
negotiating conditions and wages in the workforce
dealing with discrimination and harassment
speaking in public and using the media
managing meetings and committees
This handbook gives you the tools that work to get you where you want to be.
