When There Is No Wind, Row tells about the remarkable 50-year career path the author traveled to become a lawyer. In the 60s social and cultural barriers were high – women were supposed to become wives and mothers not lawyers - forcing her to take many detours, “tacking” in sailing terms. Her stories are a vivid reminder of how far women have come since want ads were segregated by “Male/Female.”
