The Step: One Woman’s Journey to Finding her Own Happiness and Success During the Apollo Space Program
the 1960’s, during the great space race, Martha Lemasters was a
divorced mother of three working on the Apollo program. From facing
sexism on the job, to struggling to find fulfillment in her personal
relationships, to witnessing history first hand, The Step is a brave and
inspiring memoir by one woman who was there to see and do it all! “I
felt history had to include a woman’s perspective of what it was like to
work in an environment where men outnumbered women by 200 to one,”
explains Lemasters. This glimpse into the past provides readers with a
comprehensive look at one of the contractor teams that helped make
history. In a time when women were deemed a liability simply due to
their very existence on site, this single mother overcame monumental
obstacles to find success both personally and professionally. In this
bold and exciting memoir science, history, humor and romance collide as
the author shares her struggles, triumphs, and determined spirit.
