Glater never intended to make a lifelong study of sexual politics. Rather, her interests lay in botany. But her autobiography tells us a good deal more about fighting male bias than about probing the secrets of plant biology. Attempting to carve out a career as a scientist during the 1950s, Glater watched again and again as positions and recognition went to less-capable male colleagues, while she received little more than unwanted sexual advances and suggestions that she get married and stay home. But Glater persevered, completing her doctorate with distinction and subsequently publishing groundbreaking research on plant responses to air pollution. Yet she fell far short of her dreams, frustrated by male prejudice in academe and by her own self-destructive choices in marriage. Remarkably, Glater concludes her narrative, not with bitterness, but with hope--hope that in the future society can open the door of scientific opportunity much wider for talented women. Candid and poignant, this volume deserves attention from any reader trying to understand the emotional price paid by feminist pioneers. Bryce Christensen
