9780692366844: A Good Catholic Girl: pro-choice IS pro-life

Not that long ago, the professional, political, religious, social, and personal spheres of daily living were all dominated by men, and women were, for the most part, denied entry. Since that time, many doors have been opened for women, but not quite all the way.

A Good Catholic Girlis Cathy Crosby’s inspired, existential account of the struggles she faced in the patriarchal society of mid-twentieth century America. A sensitive and sincere look at important social issues, it tackles reproductive rights, family pressures, marital discord, single parenthood, career, and race. Based on her experiences, she shares transformation and hope rather than presenting a political or religious position.

Sometimes solemn and sad but tempered with Irish wit and New York humor, it is sure to entertain, enlighten and inspire men and women to respect and honor their freedom in all areas of their lives.

About the Author:

Cathy A. Crosby was born in Manhattan and grew up in the Bronx during the 1950s and 1960s, when women’s role in society was very slowly changing. She excelled in school and graduated with a degree in chemistry from Fordham University. She also studied piano with the renowned professor, Mieczyslaw Munz, from Juilliard, and she swam for the Women's Swimming Association in Chelsea.

With doors of that time closed to women in science, she worked as a research assistant at Cornell Medical School, earned a master’s degree in philosophy from the University of Colorado, and dedicated herself to the world hunger movement. As doors began to open for women, she became a narcotics expert and Senior Criminalist at the Los Angeles County Crime Lab, and later taught chemistry at Santa Monica College. She currently teaches ‘real science’ to her granddaughters and other little ones at Hidden Gems, her daughter’s pre-K school in Los Angeles.

From Kirkus Reviews:

“A bracing vindication of the rights of women through one remarkable woman’s postwar story.”

“A debut memoir that recalls the writer’s struggles to succeed and find happiness despite the obstacles that stood in her way.” 

“The story sparkles with compelling details and remains undeniably sympathetic.”

It ends with a firm statement of the author’s intention, “to honor lives lost long ago, to uphold the freedom that is essential to all moral choices, and to claim the right to my own life at last.”
