About the Author

Reshma Saujani is a leading activist and the founder of Girls Who Code and the Marshall Plan for Moms. She has spent more than a decade advocating for women's and girls' economic empowerment, working to close the gender gap in the tech sector, and, most recently, championing policies to support mothers impacted by the pandemic. Saujani is also the author of the international bestseller Brave, Not Perfect, and her influential TED talk, "Teach Girls Bravery, Not Perfection," has more than five million views. She began her career as an attorney and Democratic organizer, and she now lives in New York City with her husband, Nihal; their sons, Shaan and Sai; and their bulldog, Stanley.


"Reshma Saujani has helped many women crack the glass ceiling, but now she's convinced that we need to rebuild the foundation of work itself. Her provocative book will challenge you to rethink some of your basic assumptions about what it will take to create real equality of opportunity."
--Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and Originals, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife
"Reshma Saujani is a truth teller and builder of movements. For all of the women who have climbed the ladder at work but still find themselves sidelined, exploited, and burned out, this book offers a daring new approach: it's not our job to do more, it's time for our workplaces to pay up."
--Tarana Burke, Executive Director of 'me too' International
"The last two years have been scary, stressful, and heartbreaking for every family in America, and we're all still searching for a way forward. Pay Up is a moving look at the daily sacrifices women make, and a rousing demand to make those sacrifices visible, respected, and valued. "
--John Legend
"The crisis facing women today isn't just about lost wages, it's about the internal harm done by overwork and the long-term implications for families. Pay Up goes beyond giving advice --it provides clear strategies that empower women to change their workplaces and their homes. This book is a must read for any working mom who wakes up wondering: 'Is this worth it?'"
--Dr. Becky Kennedy, Founder & CEO of Good Inside
"Pay Up exposes the lie that so many high achieving women were indoctrinated with: work hard, do well, and do anything a man can do. Finally, we have a book that aims to fix the system, not the woman."
--Rachel Simmons, New York Times bestselling author of Odd Girl Out
