    In 1946, at age twenty-two, Beate Sirota Gordon helped to draft the new postwar Japanese Constitution.

Sirota was born in Vien...

  • The Only Woman in the Room: Episodes in My Life and Career as a Television Writer (Applause Books)

    Rita Lakin was a pioneer – a female scriptwriter in the early 1960s when Hollywood television was exclusively male. For years, in creative meetings she was literally “the only woman in the room.” In this breezy but heartfelt remembrance, Lakin takes readers to a long-forgotten time when women were not considered worthy or welcome at the creative table. Widowed with three young children, she talked herself into a secretarial job at Universal Studios in 1962, despite being unable to type or take dictation. With guts, skill, and humor, she r...
