There are two kinds of women who work, says Shepherd Mead, author of How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying and How to Get Rich in TV without Really Trying. One is the Working Girl, the handmaiden of business: She does what men tell her to do - she types, totes coffee, gripes in her cubicle.

Marie Frale, new employee at American Household Products, hadn't put many carbons in backward before she got the point.
