Review quote

"The best book I've read on women in broadcasting... It details the incredible struggle women have faced in what some consider a leadership industry." -- Larry King, USA Today. "Marlene Sanders got there first. No woman has had to struggle harder to crack the all-white, all-male olympus of network television, which regarded women first as interlopers and then as ornaments. There are still no women holding positions of real power at the top levels of network broadcasting, but that women are finally recognized as first-rate professionals is due in no small part to the path-breaking courage of Marlene Sanders. Her book is a stirring story of a gallant fight that is yet to be won." -- Bill Moyersshow more
