For women in tech, Silicon Valley is 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. While #MeToo and #TimesUp have upended Hollywood, Washington, and beyond, we must take a deeper look into Silicon Valley, which has the power to transform our lives and future more than any other industry.

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 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 and Sequoia. Interviews with Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, and former Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer reveal just how hard it is to crack the Silicon Ceiling.

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.
