breaking the gender code

The code that impacts the lives of women struggling, striving and straddling is the Gender Code.


For many of us, the myths around career and motherhood have fed into the illusion of having it all. The reality is, these Gender Code myths are a barrier to us reaching our potential.

This book puts the Gender Code under the microscope. It scrutinises the equation of productivity + busyness = worthiness and it dismantles outdated motherhood myths.

Could it be that the things you are trying to achieve, thinking they will save you – work-life balance, me time, having it all, happiness, leaning in, leaning out, shattering the glass ceiling – are actually getting in the way and stopping you from having what you truly want? You are not alone. Your problems are universal. Fortunately, there are solutions.

It’s time to change the way you are thinking & acting

If you want to change, it is crucial to understand ourselves as a society and identify the established cultural beliefs and stereotypes that we have made truth. We can then begin to see them for what they are: myths and stories.

Beginning by interrogating the codes that surround us and the ones you drive yourself, this book then presents a methodology for creating your own, unique code by using what you already have and working out a solution from there.

Rewriting the old story

You have enough internal resources right now. This book shows that all that you do now is valuable and that being a parent or carer is not only having a positive impact on how humans flourish but is also a great career asset.

You don’t need more of anything.

Rather than having it all or having nothing at all, this book reveals a third alternative, based on what is important to you. Understanding and then creating a new code and a new model, is based on using your unique strengths and internal resources, going easy on yourself, striving for excellence rather than perfection, releasing performance pressures, looking after your own well-being and rewarding yourself along the way.

In breaking the Gender Code that is within you, you can build confidence in who you truly are and write your own code. And in writing your own code, you create an environment for the next generation of code breakers.
