Never before have female breadwinners - women who are the main earners at home - faced such a unique opportunity. These women are well placed to command respect both in the workforce and in the home, and their numbers are increasing globally. This social shift offers great potential and challenges to both the workplace and modern couples. 'Female Breadwinners' offers readers insights into how this social change can benefit women, men, families and business. It details the unvarnished lives and gritty but candid observations of real women who earn the majority of the income for their family.
Suzanne Doyle-Morris, PhD follows up the huge success of her last book "Beyond the Boys' Club: Strategies for Achieving Career Success as a Woman Working in a Male-Dominated Field," with a look into the relationships of couples where the woman is the main earner.
In the book she discusses how these couples work around non-traditional gender expectations around who brings home the bacon to create sound relationships. She also draws on her experience in the corporate sector to devise strategies on how organisations must adapt to the rising tide of female breadwinners. Her research around the lives of professional women is borne out of her Ph.D research on women working in male dominated fields, from the University of Cambridge. Dr. Doyle-Morris regularly presents to organisations as wide ranging as Clifford Chance, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Thomson Reuters, Accenture, Deloitte, BP, Barclays and Hewlett Packard among others. Her practical coaching experience paired with her academic background regarding gender in the workplace make her one of the most credible speakers on the challenges . . . and opportunities ... for today's working woman.
