KIRKUS REVIEW

Interviews with ten women, including Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem and Eleanor Holmes Norton, who discuss their backgrounds, aspirations and successful careers from a feminist viewpoint. Some of the subjects--a conductor, a police officer, an obstetrician-gynecologist, a day care organizer--manage to say some worthwhile things despite the chit-chatty magazine format. Others can be annoying. . . like Lola Redford (Mrs. Robert) who comes off as self. righteous about not advertising her husband's name now that ""she no longer has to trade on anyone else's identity."" Bright, bubbly, and, very soon, cloying.
