by Marlene Wagman-Geller. From the author of BEHIND EVERY GREAT MAN we now have WOMEN WHO LAUNCH, the encapsulated biographies of the women who shattered various glass ceilings. These intrepid females were not content to be viewed as the fairer sex; they proved that they could make it in what has traditionally been viewed as a man’s world. They serve as role models that illustrate dreams do not just have to be for sleeping. Through a combination of inspiration and grit these steel magnolias left an indelible fingerprint in the world of commerce and social movements. In this regard they are light years away from the wealthy matrons who idle away their days-the ladies who lunch.
