SE SOLO CI AVESSI ASCOLTATE, NON SAREBBE SUCCESSO NIENTE DI TUTTO QUESTO.
Sloane, Ardie, Grace e Rosalita lavorano da anni alla Truviv, marchio di abbigliamento sportivo con sede a Dallas, e con molte delle loro colleghe hanno due cose in comune: sono madri lavoratrici e si muovono al di qua di una linea invisibile che le separa dai collaboratori uomini, nell’ombra del loro prepotente superiore Ames Garrett. Quando il CEO della Truviv muore improvvisamente e loro scoprono che la persona più vicina ad assumere il controllo del ruolo vacante è proprio Ames – che ha appena assunto una nuova ragazza, giovane, bella e single – capiscono che è arrivato il momento di fare qualcosa. Troppo a lungo, infatti, ci sono stati solo sussurri, bisbigli messi ripetutamente a tacere, ignorati o nascosti dai complici. Sloane, avvocato dell’azienda, convince le altre a fare qualcosa. Qualcosa di apparentemente innocuo, qualcosa che sembra un sussurro ma presto diventa un grido. La loro decisione metterà in moto una serie di catastrofici eventi all’interno dell’ufficio: le bugie saranno scoperte, i segreti verranno rivelati. E non tutti sopravvivranno. Le vite delle quattro protagoniste e delle persone a loro vicine – altre donne, colleghi, mogli, amici e persino avversari – cambieranno drasticamente di conseguenza.

"By whispering, whose secrets were we keeping anyway - ours or theirs? Whose interests did our silence ultimately protect?... we grew tired of whispering because what were we hiding, after all? We had stories, all of us. Would speaking up cost us? Maybe. But maybe it would cost them, too." So whi

This book deals with the issues facing women in the working world - the attempt to have it all, the sexual harassment, the pay gaps. It was actually depressing for me. As a woman in her 60s who’s now retired, all these were issues I faced in my 20s, 30s and 40s. I guess I had hoped the younger gener Leggi tutto
