About Martha Lemasters
A divorced mother with three children, Martha Lemasters spent almost ten years working as a PR writer at Cape Kennedy as a member of IBM’s team on NASA’s Apollo Program. During a time when few women worked and in an environment where men outnumbered women 200 to 1, she worked her way up from secretary to a respected writer and managed to find her own happiness along the way. Her strong feminist message and inspirational talks have made her a sought-after speaker for professional and women’s groups.
About The Step
The Step is a riveting insider’s look at the real dream team who made this extraordinary achievement, of landing a man on the moon, possible. Bold and complex, women’s issues and equality are underlying themes of this richly woven tale. The space race and sexual revolution collide in this riveting memoir!
