Synopsis

Emily is twenty-two years old. She's just discovered that the gender pay gap is currently estimated to close in 2117. She's psyched that her great-great-granddaughter is going to witness this momentous step forward for the sisterhood. She's made herself a tick-off calendar that she intends to hand down the maternal line.

How much has changed since women were first allowed to cast off their pinnies and embark on the excitements of office life? Whilst it's true that we've evolved from the murk of the typing pool into the beige of the boardroom, life in the office for women can still be underwhelming in myriad ways that would be familiar to our sisters from the fifties.

Complete with nostalgic illustrations and genuine retro advice, Career Girls guides the reader through the eternal conundrums faced by women in the workplace everywhere. From redressing the pay gap through a semi-legal sponsorship scheme to surviving a leadership course where you're forced to express yourself through the medium of dance, Career Girls is the perfect companion for the modern working woman.
