Tania Grossinger..MEMOIR OF AN INDEPENDENT WOMAN: An Unconventional Life Well Lived
Defying societal conventions in an era when women were expected to marry, stay home, and have children, Grossinger forged her own path.

This brave memoir reveals the trajectory of a remarkable life, without apology.
Lynn PovichTHE GOOD GIRLS REVOLT:How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace
Editor-in-Chief of Working Woman magazine and managing editor/senior executive producer for MSNBC.com, Povich began her career at Newsweek as a secretary, when office culture was rife with sexual stereotyping. In March 1970, forty-six female employees of Newsweek filed a class action suit charging discrimination in hiring and promotion. Povich was one of the ringleaders. In 1975 she became the first female senior editor in the magazine's history. This fast-moving narrative offers many timely lessons for working women concerned about discrimination today, and for the companies that employ them. "Lynn Povich turns this epic revolt into a lesson on why and how we've just begun." - Gloria Steinem
