More women are running major companies than ever before. While still far too few in number, these female heads of industry are the forerunners of a radical shift in power now underway.
During the past few years, women's groups have been coalescing in every major American city. Formidable ladies across professions are convening at unprecedented rates, forming salons, dinner groups, and networking circles, and collaborating to achieve clout and success. A new girls' network is alive and set to hyperdrive.
Stiletto Network is about those groups: the "Power Bitches", "Brazen Hussies", and "S.L.U.T.S.: Successful Ladies Under Tremendous Stress." It's about what happens when bright, extraordinary women, from captains of industry to aspiring entrepreneurs, come together to celebrate and unwind, debate and compare notes. But it's also about what happens when they leave the table, when the talking stops and the action starts. It's about how they mine their collective intelligence to realize their dreams or champion a cause, how they lift up their friends and push them forward, how they join forces to ensure each woman gets what she needs - be it information, an introduction, a partnership, or a landmark deal. This is the first book to shed light on this groundbreaking movement. Sharing story after story of women banding together to help other women, Stiletto Network is both a call to action and an inside look at a better way of doing business.

Listening to this book provoked some good thought and I agree with the author's premise that women should have a strong network, or "inner circle" of trusted professional mentors and friends. However, I kept hoping for greater depth.
No - ryckman got the point across: women now, more than ever, need to advocate for each other and themselves; "sitletto networks" can be the springboard for professional advances
Would like to have heard "higher profile" case studies or evidence advancing the premise
