In 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.
