Unbending gender : why family and work conflict and what to do about it by Joan Williams( )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Polish and held by 2,520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do family and work increasingly conflict? Why do men as well as women feel under enormous strain, at home and at work? Why are nearly one-fourth of American children, and nearly forty percent of divorced mothers, poor?" "Until now, these phenomena have been looked at in isolation. Williams treats them as integrally linked and shows how they are all consequences not of people's choices, intentional discrimination, or biological destiny, but of our system for organizing work." "Unbending Gender shows that the work/family conflict is gender discrimination, and that the current way of organizing work is terrible for men, still worse for women, and worst of all for children. She proposes a set of practical policies and legal initiatives to reorganize the two realms of work so men and women can lead healthier and more productive work and family lives."--Jacket
Reshaping the work-family debate : why men and class matter by Joan Williams( )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 2,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States has the most family-hostile public policy in the developed world. Despite what is often reported, new mothers don't 'opt out' of work. They are pushed out by discriminating and inflexible workplaces. Today's workplaces continue to idealize the worker who has someone other than parents caring for their children. Conventional wisdom attributes women's decision to leave work to their maternal traits and desires. In this thought-provoking book, Joan Williams shows why that view is misguided and how workplace practice disadvantages men-both those who seek to avoid the breadwinner role and those who embrace it-as well as women. Faced with masculine norms that define the workplace, women must play the tomboy or the femme. Both paths result in a gender bias that is exacerbated when the two groups end up pitted against each other. And although work-family issues long have been seen strictly through a gender lens, we ignore class at our peril. The dysfunctional relationship between the professional-managerial class and the white working class must be addressed before real reform can take root. Contesting the idea that women need to negotiate better within the family, and redefining the notion of success in the workplace, the author reinvigorates the work-family debate and offers the first steps to making life manageable for all American families. -- from Book Jacket
What works for women at work : four patterns working women need to know by Joan Williams( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 2,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An essential resource for any working woman, What Works for Women at Work is a comprehensive and insightful guide for mastering office politics as a woman. Authored by Joan C. Williams, one of the nation's most-cited experts on women and work, and her daughter, writer Rachel Dempsey, this unique book offers a multi-generational perspective into the realities of today's workplace. Often women receive messages that they have only themselves to blame for failing to get ahead--Negotiate more! Stop being such a wimp! Stop being such a witch! What Works for Women at Work tells women it's not their fault. The simple fact is that office politics often benefits men over women. Based on interviews with 127 successful working women, over half of them women of color, What Works for Women at Work presents a toolkit for getting ahead in today's workplace. Distilling over 35 years of research, Williams and Dempsey offer four crisp patterns that affect working women: Prove-It-Again!, the Tightrope, the Maternal Wall, and the Tug of War. Each represents different challenges and requires different strategies--which is why women need to be savvier than men to survive and thrive in high-powered careers. Williams and Dempsey's analysis of working women is nuanced and in-depth, going far beyond the traditional cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approaches of most career guides for women. Throughout the book, they weave real-life anecdotes from the women they interviewed, along with quick kernels of advice like a "New Girl Action Plan," ways to "Take Care of Yourself", and even "Comeback Lines" for dealing with sexual harassment and other difficult situations. Up-beat, pragmatic, and chock full of advice, What Works for Women at Work is an indispensable guide for working women"--Publisher information
White working class : overcoming class cluelessness in America by Joan Williams( Book )

14 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Around the world, populist movements are gaining traction among the white working class. Meanwhile, the professional elite--journalists, managers, and establishment politicians--is on the outside looking in, and left to argue over the reasons why. In White Working Class, Joan C. Williams, described as "something approaching rock star status" in her field by the New York Times, explains why so much of the elite's analysis of the white working class is misguided, rooted in assumptions by what she has controversially coined "class cluelessness." Williams explains how most analysts, and the corresponding media coverage, have conflated "working class" with "poor." All too often, white working class motivations have been dismissed as simply racism or xenophobia. Williams explains how the term "working class" has been misapplied--it is, in fact, the elusive, purportedly disappearing middle class. This demographic often resents both the poor and the professionals. They don't, however, tend to resent the truly rich, nor are they particularly bothered by income inequality. Their dream is not to join the upper middle class, with its different culture, but to stay true to their own values in their own communities--just with more money. White Working Class is a blunt, bracing narrative that sketches a nuanced portrait of millions of people throughout the world who have proven to be a potent political force. For anyone stunned by the rise in populist, nationalist movements, wondering why so many would seemingly vote against their own economic interests or simply feeling like a stranger in their own country, White Working Class will be a convincing primer on how to connect with a crucial set of workers--and voters"--Jacket

Around the world, populist movements are gaining traction among the white working class. Meanwhile, members of the professional elite-journalists, managers, and establishment politicians-are on the outside looking in, left to argue over the reasons. In White Working Class, Joan C.
