ABOUT THE BOOK
Sandra Smith Gangle tells a compelling story of a woman who overcame obstacles to achieve her dream.
Gangle observed her mother suffer discrimination in job-seeking, housing, and banking practices, and she vowed to make a difference for others through practicing law.
Graduating from college in 1964, Gangle became a foreign language teacher and college instructor for a dozen years before attending law school. Married and the mother of two, she earned her law degree in 1980 and opened a solo practice, embarking on a thirty-seven-year career that emphasized employment dispute-resolution.
Ultimately, Gangle was the first Oregon woman to serve as a full-time labor arbitrator throughout the Pacific Northwest.
