Some brief overview of book

This program includes a prologue and epilogue read by the author. Obstruction of justice, the specter of impeachment, sexism at work, shocking revelations Jill Wine-Banks takes us inside her trial by fire as a Watergate prosecutor. It was a time, much like today, when Americans feared for the future of their democracy, and women stood up for equal treatment.

At the crossroads of the Watergate scandal and the womens movement was a young lawyer named Jill Wine Volner (as she was then known), barely thirty years old and the only woman on the team that prosecuted the highest-ranking White House officials. Called "the mini-skirted lawyer" by the press, she fought to receive the respect accorded her male counterpartsand prevailed. In The Watergate Girl, Jill Wine-Banks opens a window on this troubled time in American history.

It is impossible to read about the crimes of Richard Nixon and the people around him without drawing parallels to todays headlines. The book is also the story of a young woman who sought to make her professional mark while trapped in a failing marriage, buffeted by sexist preconceptions, and harboring secrets of her own. Her house was burgled, her phones were tapped, and even her office garbage was rifled through.

At once a cautionary tale and an inspiration for those who believe in the power of justice and the rule of law, The Watergate Girl is a revelation about our country, our politics, and who we are as a society. A Macmillan Audio production from Henry Holt and Company
