Teaser Tuesday (more than two sentences)

“It’s not for me.  It’s for every nurse or female intern who has had to put up with being belittled and demeaned, having her backside fondled or her intelligence questioned.  It’s for you, Hanna.  And all the women of your generation, who’ll never have to be harassed and leered at in a workplace again, because women like me struggled, and survived.  And I run things now, and I don’t let anyone forget it.”

People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks is good reading – don’t know why I had not read it before now.  I’m only about halfway through the novel at this point – and can’t wait to read the next chapter.
