Staff Review: "Her Brilliant Career: Ten Extraordinary Women of the Fifties" by Rachel Cooke

★★★★

A fascinating look at the role of women in the 1950s, this book shows us that there were definitely exceptions to the stereotypical housewife we've been shown. This book gives mini biographies of some of the extraordinary women who forged careers in a man's world and paved the way for the opportunities that women enjoy today. From race car drivers to writers to architects, we are given an in depth look at the careers and private lives of these pioneers. If you are interested in women's history, this is the book for you.
