Book Title: Why So Slow? The Advancement of Women

Author: Virginia Valian

Book Description:

Faced with my own challenges and setbacks associated with forging a career in science, I found this book both insightful and inspiring. Valian puts forth an interesting and well-researched hypothesis about the additive effects of small but highly cumulative prejudices facing women academically, professionally, and societally. Her theories have guided me to a clearer understanding of some of the situations I faced personally, and they inspire me to examine my own biases as I strive to be an effective mentor to my students.
