Reviews

'Overall, this work is an informative and excellent starting point for anyone who would like to know where Europe and European countries stand with regard to the feminization of top decision-making positions within companies. I found this book very stimulating as it seems to be sparking new research avenues.' - Aline Conchon, ETUI, Transfer: European Review of Labour and Resarch
