Book Description :

The New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Hedy Lamarr possessed a stunning beauty. She also possessed a stunning mind. Could the world handle both? Her beauty almost certainly saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to marriage with an Austrian arms dealer. Underestimated in everything else, she overheard the Third Reich's plans while at her husband's side, understanding more than anyone would guess. She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle, and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood. She became Hedy Lamarr, screen star. But she kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist. And she knew a few secrets about the enemy. She had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis...if anyone would listen to her. A powerful novel based on the incredible true story of the glamour icon and scientist whose groundbreaking invention revolutionised modern communication, The Only Woman in the Room is a masterpiece.

Book Description :

Norma Petersen Paulus grew up in Depression-era poverty in Eastern Oregon. She survived a bout with polio in her teens, taught herself to be a legal secretary, and graduated from law school with honors despite not attending college first. Anyone with such a story would be remarkable, but this was just her beginning. Paulus came from a family of Roosevelt Democrats, but when a friend campaigned for a Republication seat in the state legislature, she switched parties. Amid the nationwide political upheavals of the late 1960s, Oregon's Republicans, led by popular governor Tom McCall, seemed to be her kind of people-principled, pragmatic, and committed to education, the environment, and equality for all citizens under the law Paulus's appointment by Governor McCall to the Marion-Polk Boundary Commission in 1969 launched her on a long and distinguished career of public service. She ran successfully for the Oregon House of Representatives in 1970. After three terms in the House, she was elected Oregon's Secretary of State in 1976-the first woman to be elected to a statewide office in Oregon. She was the Republican candidate for governor in 1986, served a stint on the Northwest Power and Conservation Council, went on to become Oregon's superintendent of public instruction, and at the end of her long career, headed the Oregon Historical Society. During her years of public service, Norma Paulus occupied a distinctive niche in Oregon's progressive political ecosystem. Her vivid personality and strong convictions endeared her to a broad swath of citizens. Engaging and opinionated, charming and forceful, Paulus was widely covered in statewide and national media during her eventful, sometimes controversial career. Now, The Only Woman in the Room documents her life and work in a lively, anecdotal history that will appeal to historians, political scientists, newshounds, and ordinary citizens alike. Book jacket.

Book Description :

(Applause Books). Rita Lakin was a pioneer a female scriptwriter in the early 1960s when Hollywood television was exclusively male. For years, in creative meetings she was literally "the only woman in the room." In this breezy but heartfelt remembrance, Lakin takes readers to a long-forgotten time when women were not considered worthy or welcome at the creative table. Widowed with three young children, she talked herself into a secretarial job at Universal Studios in 1962, despite being unable to type or take dictation. With guts, skill, and humor, she rose from secretary to freelancer, to staff writer, to producer, to executive producer and showrunner, meeting hundreds of famous and infamous show biz legends along the way during her long and unexpected career. She introduced many women into the business and was a feminist before she even knew she was one. The general public did not know her name, but Lakin touched the lives of millions of viewers week after week, year after year. The relevance of her personal journey charming yet occasionally shocking will be an eye-opener to present-day who take for granted the abundance of female creative talent in today's Hollywood.

Book Description :

This dissertation analyzes the persistent disadvantaging of women in multidistrict litigation (MDL) leadership appointments. First, it quantifies the gender gap by examining MDL dockets filed with the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation containing leadership appointments from 2012-2017 to establish the rates of female appointment and their progress throughout the time period. These quantitative findings establish a significant gender gap in MDL leadership appointments, serving as the basis for further exploration of the institutional, cultural, and interpersonal factors that contribute to this discrepancy. In-depth interviews with women MDL practitioners and one federal judge explore their experiences within their firms as well as at the MDL practice level. Utilizing an inequality regime analytical framework, this study analyzes how firm and practice organizational processes, culturally-infused interactions, and institutional influences interact and therefore perpetuate the persistent gender gap in MDL leadership appointments. The findings in this study aim to contribute to the literature about how inequality regimes work as well as more deeply inform future efforts and initiatives for women's advancement in court-appointed leadership and the legal profession as a whole.

Book Description :

The Only Girl In The Room humorously wrestles with one small town girl's desire for success, the reality of the business world for women and how we need to make changes for the future health of our culture and economy to allow room for BOTH men and women, in the same room, at the same table, side by side. The reflections shared in this book are a compilation of the often comical observations, situations and tensions Nancy experienced in her own up and down business career - specifically around the myriad of ideas imprinted from her mother's unrealized ambitions, the ideas she had been bathed in from the 60's and 70's mass media, ideas picked up from the culture-at-large and ideas she formulated based on her own personal ambitions about what "a woman's business career should and would look like starting out in 1981."
