Sandra Chapnik illustrates powerfully in her book through her own example how women can achieve true equality.  I have always said that it is only when a woman, who has enjoyed traditional roles, can also be an innovator, trail blazer, and excel professionally that we have achieved emancipation.  From day one Chapnik had a strong will and made her own choices.  She describes her life in touching detail, the joys, sorrows, temporary defeats, and ultimate victories.  She inspires us simply by telling us about her life experiences with candour and in exceptional prose.
