Publisher Comments:

Life turns out in ways you never expected.

The eighteen million women born in the first years of the baby boom grew up anticipating a life of rules--go to college, get married, have a family. But when the time came, the cultural, social and political tumult of the late 1960s catapulted them into options that no previous generation had even considered.

The Women Who Broke All the Rules is the first book to celebrate the ordinary but extraordinary women who made decisions that have changed every woman's life. Against extreme odds and without role models, these women made unprecedented life choices--in marriage, childbearing, education and work. By breaking every rule in the good girl handbook, they defined new ways for adult women to live. You will recognize yourself, your family and your friends in these pages.

Synopsis:

Featuring in-depth interviews with over 100 women, this important book uncovers the untold stories of lives in progress, doing one's best and rewriting old rules. The stories tell of the creativity, courage, and determination used by women to forever redefine womanhood.

Jenn, August 26, 2006 (view all comments by Jenn)
This is a great book about the women who when they were growing up their dreams about their adult life needed to be limited to teacher, secretary, nurse, and mother. But when these girls hit college, a whole WORLD of opportunity awaited them, things they never would have immagined because they were no longer told "girls can't do that"!
