Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong by Angela Saini

Have you ever heard that women have smaller brains, are weaker, and lack leadership skills? Instead, they are empathetic, which is why they “perfectly” perform in the role of housekeeper.

These are myths and beliefs from around the world. The book proudly describes why they are quite the opposite by presenting and analyzing hundreds of studies.

In a fair and non-judgmental way, the author interviews scientists to debunk, once and for all, the answer to the question “Are women inferior?” Although written scientifically, this book contains surprising, interesting, and fascinating facts!

Girl Boss Takeover by Sarah Jones

I’m a self-proclaimed girl boss. The best book I’ve read so far is called Girl Boss Takeover by Sarah Jones. The book follows Sarah as she embarks on her own journey of becoming a successful businesswoman, while also providing helpful advice and tips along the way. It covers everything from setting goals and developing strategies to handling tough conversations with colleagues or clients, all while maintaining work-life balance.

Whether you’re just starting out in your professional career or already established in your industry, this book will provide valuable insights that can help you reach success faster than ever before!

When asked why readers should pick up this book instead of any other one out there focusing on female entrepreneurship, it is because I believe this book provides an honest account of what it’s like to be a woman entrepreneur today—the highs, the lows—and honestly acknowledges that it isn’t easy but it is worth it.

Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

I recently read Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and ‌it has become my favorite girl boss book. This book has inspired me to break out of my comfort zone and pursue my goals with confidence and determination.

Sheryl’s honest and relatable storytelling made me feel like she was speaking directly to me and encouraging me to take control of my own life and career. The practical advice and insights she shares about navigating challenges and overcoming obstacles as a woman in the workplace are invaluable. This book has helped me understand the importance of embracing my unique strengths and advocating for myself in the workplace. It also helped me understand how to further support my wife’s career.

Lean In is not just a book about success in the workplace, it is a guide for women and husbands everywhere to achieve their full potential and live their best life. I would highly recommend it to any woman or man looking for inspiration and guidance on their personal and professional journey.

The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

One really inspirational girl-boss-related book I read is The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes, the showrunner of hit TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder.

If you, too, are an introvert like Shonda and have trouble putting yourself out there, then this book is for you. It covers the year she spent challenging herself to say “Yes” to every invitation and challenge she received, which she would normally have denied out of anxiety, and how doing so changed her life for the better.

It’s an inspirational story about asserting oneself and having the confidence to put yourself out there, and I highly recommend it.
