Despite the huge advances women have made in recent decades, their ambitions are still undermined in subtle ways. Parents, teachers, bosses, and institutions all give less encouragement to women than men, and women still grow up believing that they must defer to men in order be seen as feminine. If their ambition does survive into adulthood, too often those ambitions must be downsized or abandoned to accommodate “wifely” duties of household chores and child care. As a result, women--unlike men–continually have to re-shape their goals and expectations.
Yet expressing ambition, pursuing it, and getting recognition for one’s accomplishments is critical to identity and happiness.

In the process, she illuminates just what is necessary for women to articulate--and fulfill--their dreams.
