Summary
News correspondent Cokie Roberts examines the nature of women's roles, from mother to mechanic, sister to soldier, through the lens of her personal experience. Each essay introduces us to several of the fascinating women Roberts has encountered during the course of her reporting career; Roberts also relates moving anecdotes about the women in her life, like her mother, former congress-woman Lindy Boggs. These intimate portraits of women become the springboard for more extensive discussions of women's issues, such as women's positions in politics, business, motherhood, and marriage.--From publisher description
