Summary
When President Bill Clinton was elected, Dee Dee Myers was told she would act as his Press Secretary--but only for the transition. There was no guarantee she would keep the position after his inauguration. But in January 1993, Myers did become Press Secretary--the youngest person ever and the only woman ever to hold the position. As she writes, "I wasn't the first woman to be the first woman, of course. I stand on the shoulders of the countless others who stuck their necks out--and sometimes got their heads knocked off--for going where no woman had gone before." Told through the prism of her own life, this book explores the trials woman have boldly faced throughout history to achieve opportunities in places where their presence was once denied, a fresh take on the achievements of women in all aspects of public life.--From publisher description
