Lighting the way nine women who changed modern America by Karenna Gore Schiff( Recording )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In [this book, the author] captures the lives of nine extraordinary women whose impact on contemporary America resonates today." Lighting the Way chronicles how these remarkable women worked behind the scenes and against the odds in the major political movements of the last century. The stories collected in [the book offers] texture to iconic moments in history, from the triumph of women's suffrage, to the decision to enter World War II, to the struggle for civil rights, to the effort to address the AIDS crisis. They also illustrate the value of honoring dissent; each of these women was ridiculed and ostracized for arguing for the changes in national policy that are taken for granted today. -Dust jacket

But she's also a lawyer, a children's advocate, and the author of a new book about nine influential American women. Found out more about Schiff and her views during this interview with the editor of Texas Monthly, Evan Smith
