Ms. Walsh talked about her book Divided Lives: The Public and Private Struggles of Three Accomplished Women, published Simon and Schuster in 1995. The three women mentioned are: Meredith Viera, who was a television journalist for CBS, Rachel Worby, who was a classical music conductor and first lady of West Virginia, and Alison Estabrook, who was a surgeon in New York. She interviewed dozens of women but eventually settled on these three representatives. The book focuses on how difficult it was for these three women to lead “divided lives” between their careers and their families, even after the women’s liberation movement. close
