Own It tells women's stories. The ugly, the happy, the rarely discussed, the whispered, the denied. In a world where women are playing superhuman - in various avatars as a leader at work, breadwinner, wife, mum, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister - and playing each role to perfection, the attitudes to women at work continue to be prehistoric. Most men at both work and home are unable to keep up with this rapid and dramatic metamorphoses. And therein lies the rub. Through interactions with close to 200 Indian women leaders, the book squarely addresses the various challenges that exist for women in the workplace coupled with the complexities of being in an Indian home. It also offers viable roadmaps for women to navigate their careers in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
