Abstract:

"Susan Fowler was just twenty-five years old when her blog post exposing sexual harassment at Uber riveted the nation, toppling the company's leadership and helping to spark the #MeToo movement. But long before she worked as a software engineer, Fowler had been struggling against the entrenched forces that prevent so many from pusuing their dreams. Raised in poverty with little formal education, she nevertheless propelled herself to the Ivy League, and to sought-after jobs in Siliocon Valley. In the male-dominated realms of science and technology, from her undergraduate physics lab to the startup world, she continually faced gender-based discrimination and mistreatment. Fortunately, this meant that by the time she got to Uber, she knew how to stand up for herself. When the company refused to take steps to address its toxic workplace culture, she knew she had to speak out - no matter the consequences"--Back cover.
