Description

"As a Silicon Valley refugee myself, I deeply understand how challenging it is to be an ambitious woman in a male-dominated field (and world). Kudos to Jackson for capturing these challenges with spirit and hope. A must-read for all women who have ever bumped into the glass ceiling and broken through. Highly recommended!" --Stephanie Chandler, author and CEO of the Nonfiction Authors Association "This powerful memoir will help other women, in spite of anti-female adversity, overcome pain, self-blame, and shame. It will be especially beneficial to vulnerable young women as they try to make their way in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)." --Beverly Engel, LMFT, best-selling author of I'm Saying No! Standing up Against Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Pressure "This is a critical book that all corporations should study in order to evolve their companies into a place where women want to work. Lucinda Jackson tells it like it is, and her takeaways and review of legal precedents are relevant to all women and men who work in corporations. Her chronology of the past seven decades teaches us how women are silenced by men and by their own pain, and how difficult it is to break through social and legal barriers to realize their professional and personal dreams. We have a long way to go, but Jackson tells us how we can get there." --Silvia Garrigo, Global Vice President, Millicom International "In the riveting Just a Girl: Growing up Female and Ambitious, Dr. Lucinda Jackson vividly describes how she surmounted harassment, discrimination, and dirty tricks on America's farms and at top corporations to become a respected scientist and corporate leader. But rather than focusing on victimhood, she forges powerful recommendations for how women can overcome sexism and pursue successful careers in science. Readers of this book will be inspired to redouble society's efforts to create a more fair and equitable culture for both women and men." --Cheryl Karpowicz, Senior Vice President, Ecology and Environment, Inc. "Lucinda Jackson attains shero status as she chronicles her triumph over sexual harassment that is ever present as air. A corporate scientist and academic, Jackson compellingly weaves her personal story with society's awakening and progress toward addressing this scourge." --Andrea Jarrell, author of I'm the One Who Got Away: A Memoir
