Do These Work Boots Make My Feet Look Fat?

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
The 1970’s was a daunting time for women working in non-traditional jobs. Kathleen McLaughlin obtained a position with a local utility as the first woman mechanic’s helper. The reaction of the men on the job was unexpected. This book is a humorous collection of snippets of her non-traditional life: personal time, work time and her promotion into the curious world of corporate administration.

Review by: Gail Kaufmann on Sep. 14, 2013 :
This is a moving story of a serious problem of discrimination done with humor through the eyes of the woman who lived it. It is set in the 70's & 80"s at the height of women becoming empowered. You laughed with her, cried with her and felt her anger all in the same chapter. She opened doors for the rest of us by just wanting to take care of her daughter in the only way she knew how. I admire her.
