Description
"Recruited to the Secret Service as one of its first five female agents, Childers would surprise many people, including herself. Her duties included undercover work, protective details for Jacqueline Kennedy and her children, and attending state dinners where she met world leaders, including Prince Juan Carlos of Spain. In addition, she had to figure out how to disguise the .357 Magnum revolver that she carried at all times, whether wearing jogging clothes, a business suit, or an evening gown. It was 1970, and the Secret Service, like most public and private organizations, struggled-sometimes unsuccessfully-with the challenges of incorporating a rising tide of women into government service and other professional workplaces. Written in a lighthearted but highly informative style, "Scared Fearless" details the obstacles and the joys, the moments of high adventure, and the laughable fashion dilemmas that were part of Childers' groundbreaking role. Through everything that happened, Childers says, she followed her father's admonition: "Just do it scared.""--,Provided by publisher.
