Overview

Tearing Down Walls: A Woman's Triumph is a brave and honest look back at the breakthroughs that have marked Mary Gardiner Jones' whole life. From breaking free of a forceful and domineering mother who saw only marriage in her daughter's future, dealing with the stigma and loss of an absent, alcoholic father, to confronting and overcoming workplace gender barriers that appeared at every step of her legal and governmental career. The book examines the psychological impact that her elitist background and work experiences had on her personal development, and describes her psychoanalysis and the role that it played throughout her life to help her heal emotional scars. These memoirs bring a practitioner's approach to scholarly issues. The book is a celebration of one brilliant and determined woman's successes, a careful in-depth and comprehensive review of her major career milestones.
