She and her coworkers have experienced this inequality and unfair treatment of women in the professional setting over the years.
Dr. Carballo-Perelman’s passion and motivation to write her female empowering books derives from wanting to help women who have experienced similar situations. She provides hope that if they search for companies with ethics and integrity, they will indeed be re-hired.
Her aim is to empower women, not make them into "little men." By doing so, she hopes to accelerate the overall equality of the sexes in all areas of life!

The New Working Woman's (r)Evolution: How to Thrive and Succeed Through Empowerment is a self-help book by author Cristina Carballo-Perelman, M.D. As the title suggests, the topic of the guidebook focuses on the empowerment of women, largely in the Western world of business work forces. Some of the topics discussed include the disparity between the gender split at boardroom level versus the way a brand might represent its female clientele, the minefield of sexual harassment, and the presence of the glass ceiling now sitting at mid-level management in a lot of firms. Carballo-Perelman highlights the key areas in which women can both own and generate their power, with a view to overcoming such ridiculous obstacles and being judged on their merits rather than any outward aspect of their bodies.

Cristina Carballo-Perelman takes a practical and well-organized approach to empowerment that I feel will be highly accessible to all, because it focuses inwardly on personality traits. Rather than fighting and blaming the outside system, The New Working Woman's (r)Evolution encourages change based on the empowerment of each individual woman, so that we as a gender are able to develop the qualities needed to rise above the ludicrous conditions that the world sets upon us. Something I really enjoyed was the idea of women removing themselves from those workplaces which just won’t aid you to stay, breaking some false loyalty ideas. I found the exercises slightly lacking in depth, but I felt the message behind each attribute was very valuable. This book is an excellent start for anyone on the path to success.
