Book Title: Just a Girl: Growing Up Female and Ambitious
A female pioneer during the 1950s to 2010s, Lucinda Jackson struggles to succeed as a scientist in America’s male-dominated work world. She battles sexist torment in girlhood, in jobs on farms and in restaurants, in academia’s science cliques, and in the halls and corner office of Fortune 500 companies—and, eventually, she overcomes shame and self-blame, learns to believe in herself, and becomes a champion for others. Eye-opening and upfront, with insider tips, Just a Girl points the way to a brighter future for women everywhere.
