During Women’s History Month, I went to visit the display of my book, Breaking Down the Walls, in the window of Barnes & Noble store on 5th Avenue and 46th Street. There was a posture 4ft X 5ft of my book cover as well as a display of the book in their window. I autographed all the copies of my book that were for sale in every B & N stores in Manhattan. It was a very successful trip.
When I returned home, I was invited to be interviewed on KTLA TV. I was able to tell how I broke down many walls of prejudices against women. After 50 years in the financial industry, there still is not equal pay for equal jobs as well as equal opportunities for advancement.
Breaking Down the Walls, is my story to teach women that they must always negotiate their pay and promotion opportunities throughout their careers.
