Jill Wine-Banks’ memoir The Watergate Girl: My Fight for Truth and Justice Against A Criminal President is a behind-the-scenes account of the Watergate investigation and the Nixon impeachment trial. As an assistant special prosecutor, Wine-Banks grilled witnesses and endured the blatant workplace sexism of the early 1970s. At barely 30 years old, she played a key role in uncovering evidence that led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon. This lively memoir is the story of a trailblazing young woman at the crossroads of presidential history and the women’s movement. She is now a legal analyst for MSNBC.
