Cult of Power: Sex Discrimination in Corporate America and What Can Be Done About It Cult of Power: Sex Discrimination in Corporate America and What Can Be Done About It

by Martha Burk

Book Reviews

"Here we are in the twenty-first century, and nineteenth-century cultural concepts are still in play. Reading Dr. Burk's book, Cult of Power, confirms and reinforces the reality that 'the market' cannot, and has not, addressed workplace discrimination. Burk has solid solutions!" --Nancy Lee Hurlbert, President, Business and Professional Women USA

"Corporate America has trained a corps of visible-diversity disciples who look busy and fight to land the company a spot on the 'best places to work if you're a woman' lists. But Martha Burk explains why the efforts at corporate diversity are so much hot air . . . In Cult of Power, Burk explains in vivid specifics the forces that keep women back." --Susan Antilla, author of Tales From the Boom-Boom Room

"Sex discrimination -- a major disruptive force in the lives of women -- remains an element of corporate culture primarily because men in positions of power and control sanction its continued existence. If you do not believe this to be the case, you surely will after reading Martha Burk's Cult of Power. Her powerfully descriptive narrative . . . discloses the depth of a corporate hypocrisy that substantially devalues women." --Raymond F. Gregory, author of Women and Workplace Discrimination: Overcoming Barriers to Gender Equality

"Martha Burk tells it like it is -- clearly, concisely, and accurately, Discrimination against women still exists at the workplace and in sports. Cult of Power is not about golf. It's about equality." --Helen Thomas, Hearst Newspapers Columnist and author of Thanks for the Memories, Mr. President

"While preaching equality, America's power elite supports some big tree houses with 'No Girls Allowed' signs hung on their front door. Thank goodness for Martha Burk, who works tirelessly to expose how the cult of power is in reality still the cult of male power." --Pat Schroeder, President, Association of American Publishers

"Bravo to Martha Burk for pointing out the discrimination practiced by the many Fortune 500 CEOs whose membership in the male-only Augusta National Golf Club not only denies women executives access to corporate networking but gives to their employees the profoundly disheartening message that gender discrimination is acceptable. Cult of Power clearly and succinctly points out the error of their ways. We can only hope that these men will read it and learn from it." --Geraldine Ferraro, Former Democratic Vice-Presidential Candidate and author of Framing a Life
