Lisa Gates has written a piece for Forbes: She Negotiates on author, speaker, and WMC board member Gloria Feldt. 

"Odds are if you were a woman growing up in Texas in the 50s with three babies by the time you were 20, the word “career” was not going to show up in your lexicon. But Gloria Feldt was different. And whether you know it or not, you were on her mind.
