Event Description

The Breakfast Club presented by CCI and Boffins Books is an event series dedicated to bringing talented authors and their books to the WA business community.


Join us for a light breakfast and the opportunity to meet the exceptionally talented authors and leaders as they give insights and information that can be applied to your own workplace.


Catherine Fox is one of Australia’s leading commentators on women and the workforce. She wrote the ‘Corporate Woman’ column for the Australian Financial Review for many years and has written three previous books, including Seven Myths about Women and Work, which was shortlisted for the 2013 Ashurst Business Literature Prize. She helped establish the annual Westpac/Financial Review 100 Women of Influence Awards and is on several advisory boards, including the Australian Defence Force Gender Equality Advisory Board.



About the book:


Wage inequality between men and women seems one of the intractables of our age. Women are told they need to back themselves more, stop marginalising themselves, negotiate better, speak up, support each other, strike a balance between work and home. This searing book argues that insisting that women fix themselves won’t fix the system, the system built by men.


Catherine Fox does more than identify and analyse the nature of the problem. Her book is an important tool for male leaders who say they want to make a difference. She throws down the gauntlet, showing how business, defence, public service and community leaders might do it, rather than just talk about it. She shows that not only will this be better for women but for productivity as well, not to mention men and women’s health and happiness at home and at work.
