Publisher's Summary

Women are suffering from a crisis of confidence about work. Accustomed to being overlooked and undervalued, even when women do get to the top, they explain their success away as 'luck'. But it's not.

Not Just Lucky exposes the structural and cultural disadvantages that rob women of their confidence - often without them even realising it. Drawing on case studies, detailed research and her own experience in politics and media, Jamila Rizvi is the warm, witty and wise friend you've been waiting for. She'll give you everything you need to start fighting for your own success and for a more inclusive, equal workplace for all. (She'll also bring the red wine.)

This unashamedly feminist career manifesto is for women who worry they'll look greedy if they ask for more money. It's for women who dream big but dread the tough conversations. It's for women who get nervous, stressed and worried and seem to overthink just about everything. It will help you realise that you're not just lucky. You're brilliant.

Brilliant and empowering

Insightful, researched, realistic, optimistic, a must read for men and women. I wish I’d had this to read as a teenager! Also loved that it’s narrated by the author, makes it so personable and almost more podcast like, like a series of essential episodes! Thank you!

a must read for Australian men

thank you Jamila. I found your book very insightful. I'm a 30 something male business owner in Australia. you have your finger on the pulse and I found my self regularly agreeing with your points. this book should not only be read by women but definitely by men. it has really opened my eyes to the issue women face in the workplace, which is something that's not really taught to men. you are well spoken and it was a pleasure listening to you.
