Samenvatting

This unique social history spans the last half century, when developments in birth control and the education of women have increased opportunities for women to have successful careers. This book investigates how the first generation of modern women faced the challenge of combining marriage and family with professional responsibilities. Olivia Cox-Fill, an Irish journalist and professional filmmaker, interviewed hundreds of prominent women from 10 different countries on three continents before presenting this group portrait of 30 interviews of women leaders, diplomats, award-winning scientists, government ministers, doctors, and industrialists, to name a few of the professions represented. The interviews are set against the backdrop of the social history of women in each country. Their achievements, especially in light of the tenor of their times, and their desire and ability to have rewarding and fulfilling family lives make them inspiring models for later generations of women who may consider it necessary to choose between home and career. The author's international connections with high-ranking diplomats and politicians allow us valuable glimpses into the real world of outstanding women.
