"Holy crow! I thought this was a good place to work!" Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Publisher of The New York Times.

This is what the women of The New York Times were up against in the 1970s, when they began their historic fight to end discrimination at an institution that prided itself on its liberal traditions and fairness. Nan Robertson was one of the members of the Women's Caucus and in this exhilarating and angering book she recounts events that she rightly describes as "a metaphor for what working women everywhere faced." The saga of how the Caucus went up against the old boy network and prevailed will leave women readers everywhere feeling empowered to fight for parity in the workplace.
