    Meet author Norma Yeager. Norma will be chatting with me about her book, Breaking Down the Walls: 50 Courageous and Successful Years
    About the book:
    Young women in the 21st century have choices. They can marry or not; the doors of educational institutions and industry are wide open to them. They can do and be whatever they choose. But to keep moving forward, it is important to understand from where we have come. And Norma Yaeger's story helps put it is perspective. Like most young women in the 1950's, Norma Yaeger married young, had children, and depended on her husband to support their families. Unlike most women of the times, when things went awry and her husband failed to provide, Norma took it upon herself to make a better life for her and her kids.
    About the author:
    Norma Yaeger, came of age in New York in the mid 20th century when even educated women were expected to marry, have children and keep house.  So Norma went to City College of New York’s Bernard Baruch School Of Business and the Institute of Finance and then she got married, had children and deferred to her husband.  When he failed to provide, she not only stepped up, she stepped out, and became a stockbroker.
