About the Book

The Pink Corner Office addresses issues and obstacles faced by women in the workplace.  In the author’s own words:


“As women, we face a number of challenges as we strive to succeed in the workplace. Understandably, we feel conflicted. The glass ceiling and the unique stresses that we endure at all levels have been influenced by our historical and traditional roles as mothers in the home and as sexual objects. Society teaches us that a woman’s place is in the home as wife and mother.”
A woman who excels is looked upon as an anomaly, and there is wide spread perception that women do not make effective leaders. In addition, at all levels in the workplace women are vulnerable to sexual harassment. Working women, particularly women in professional careers with long hours, have to find ways to balance work with family responsibilities.”
