內容簡介

金融時報矽谷議題選書

 
出版隨即登上美國各大排行榜!

對許多科技業人士來說,矽谷就像是一個現代版的烏托邦。除非妳是一個女人。

全世界的科技重鎮─矽谷,有數不清現在熱門的科技都誕生於這個地方,雖然看起來像是色彩鮮艷的童話世界,一切規則卻是由男人說了算。

首先,科技業的女性人數大大少於男性,這導致女性在這個產業總是面臨嚴重的歧視,再來,許多和投資者的「商業談判」居然是在性愛派對上進行。

彭博記者Emily Chang在這本書中揭露在矽谷的完美包裝下,隱藏著怎樣的性別歧視,首先說明女性在矽谷工作會碰上的狀況,資料來源都是矽谷的內部員工。

Change訪問了數名科技業中已經嶄露頭角的女性領導者,包括Facebook COO桑柏格、YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki和前Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer等人,將她們的辛苦奮鬥呈現在世人眼前,還有其他女性如何不惜拿自己的事業冒險,也要為將來的女性爭取權益。

Instant National Bestseller

"Excellent." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Brotopia is more than a business book. Silicon Valley holds extraordinary power over our present lives as well as whatever utopia (or nightmare) might come next." --New York Times

Silicon Valley is a modern utopia where anyone can change the world. Unless you're a woman.

For women in tech, Silicon Valley is not a fantasyland of unicorns, virtual reality rainbows, and 3D-printed lollipops, where millions of dollars grow on trees. It's a "Brotopia," where men hold all the cards and make all the rules. Vastly outnumbered, women face toxic workplaces rife with discrimination and sexual harassment, where investors take meetings in hot tubs and network at sex parties.

In this powerful exposé, Bloomberg TV journalist Emily Chang reveals how Silicon Valley got so sexist despite its utopian ideals, why bro culture endures despite decades of companies claiming the moral high ground (Don't Be Evil! Connect the World!)--and how women are finally starting to speak out and fight back.

Drawing on her deep network of Silicon Valley insiders, Chang opens the boardroom doors of male-dominated venture capital firms like Kleiner Perkins, the subject of Ellen Pao's high-profile gender discrimination lawsuit, and Sequoia, where a partner once famously said they "won't lower their standards" just to hire women. Interviews with Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, and former Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer--who got their start at Google, where just one in five engineers is a woman--reveal just how hard it is to crack the Silicon Ceiling. And Chang shows how women such as former Uber engineer Susan Fowler, entrepreneur Niniane Wang, and game developer Brianna Wu, have risked their careers and sometimes their lives to pave a way for other women.

Silicon Valley's aggressive, misogynistic, work-at-all costs culture has shut women out of the greatest wealth creation in the history of the world. It's time to break up the boys' club. Emily Chang shows us how to fix this toxic culture--to bring down Brotopia, once and for all.
