New Book Announcement: Aviatrix: First Woman Pilot for Hughes Airwest

You know what really pisses me right off?  Sexual harassment.  When I started teaching ballroom dancing back in 1973, I was sexually harassed by the gay guys that worked in the studio.  I was 21 at the time; what did I know about gay men and harassment?  Nothing.

Getting right to the point here, a lady I know has just released a new book on Amazon that's worth reading.  Aviatrix: First Woman Pilot for Hughes Airwest by Mary Shipko is an autobiography about her career as a commercial pilot, overcoming discrimination and dealing with sexual harassment in the airline business back in the bad old days.  This one is a good read.
