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. Only 31 at the time, Myers
was too intoxicated by victory to realize she was being
shortchanged. But in January of 1993, Myers did become Press
Secretary in spite of the odds. She was the youngest person
ever and the only woman in the history of the country to
hold the position. As she writes in this poignant new book,
"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. Not all of them
were trying to advance the interests of the sisterhood.
Still, because of them, those of us who followed have had
more, different, and better opportunities. I know I have."
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. Filled with anecdotes from her tenure in the
white house, Myers provides a fresh take on the achievements
woman have made in all aspects of public life.
