They came, they saw, they conquered, and probably looked quite fabulous while at it. It is a marvelous thing that we finally have reached a societal level of equality that allows women to compete with men in arenas unthought of for much of history.

But one thing they do have in common is that they made it to the top in an environment not particularly catering to their gender and that’s commendable. Get some great inspiration on how to triumph by reading these books about successful women.

#5 Stutterer Interrupted: The Comedian Who Almost Didn’t Happen

Nina G bills herself as “The San Francisco Bay Area’s Only Female Stuttering Comedian.” On stage, she encounters the occasional heckler, but off stage she is often confronted with people’s comments toward her stuttering; listeners completing her sentences, inquiring, “Did you forget your name?” and giving unwanted advice like “slow down and breathe” are common.

(As if she never thought about slowing down and breathing in her over thirty years of stuttering!) When Nina started comedy nearly ten years ago, she was the only woman in the world of stand-up who stuttered—not a surprise, since men outnumber women four to one amongst those who stutter and comedy is a male-dominated profession. Nina’s brand of comedy reflects the experience of many people with disabilities in that the problem with disability isn’t in the person with it but in a society that isn’t always accessible or inclusive.
