"A brilliant manifesto explaining why women are still so underestimated and overlooked in today's world, but how we can also be hopeful for change"
(Philippa Perry)
"An impassioned, meticulously argued and optimistic call to arms for anyone who cares about creating a fairer society"
(Observer)
Imagine living in a world in which you were routinely patronised by women.
 
Imagine having your views ignored or your expertise frequently challenged by them.
 
Imagine people always addressing the woman you are with before you.
 
Now imagine a world in which the reverse of this is true.
 
The Authority Gap provides a startling perspective on the unseen bias at work in our everyday lives, to reveal the scale of the gap that still persists between men and women. Would you believe that US Supreme Court Justices are interrupted four times more often than male ones... 96% of the time by men? Or that British parents, when asked to estimate their child's IQ will place their son at 115 and their daughter at 107?
 
Marshalling a wealth of data with precision and insight, and including interviews with pioneering women such as Baroness Hale, Mary Beard and Bernadine Evaristo, Mary Ann exposes unconscious bias in this fresh feminist take on how to address and counteract systemic sexism in ways that benefit us all.
 
Includes interviews with pioneering women such as:
 
Baroness Hale
Mary Beard
Bernadine Evaristo
Mary McAleese
Julia Gillard
Dolly Alderton and Pandora Sykes
Cherie Blair
Liz Truss
Amber Rudd
Frances Morris
Laura Bates
