The chapter begins with Sam telling me he wants to leave our marriage and my trying to understand the reasons for our divorce and cope with its overwhelming pain. I begin dating and meet someone new, Ted. I take my first backpack trip and experience the peace of the mountains. I become a Resident Fellow in one of the Stanford dorms. I become involved in Stanford Hillel and strengthen my commitment to Judaism. I continue to study occupational segregation, this time in bank telling and the Mexican maquiladoras. I take on two new challenges--first chair of the National Council for Research on Women and an associate editor of the journal, Signs, which I help to bring to Stanford. I attempt, unsuccessfully, to get my salary in line with that of my male colleagues. In the chapter’s conclusion, I end my relationship with Ted.
