About the book
Exemplified by the power of the human spirit, life in the face of death, Cheryl Waiters had the courage to challenge a generation to release the shackles of ignorance surrounding women and gender roles. All of this and more is lyrically conveyed in Cheryl Waiters' autobiographical novel titled "Blood Sweat and Highheels", based in Cleveland Ohio.
Blood, Sweat, and High Heels
Delivers a message of self-empowerment for women of all ages, nationalities and demonstrates unyielding courage to transcend the impossible and the unthinkable. Cheryl holds the noble distinction as the country's first African- American female to rise to the height of fame in her more than 20-year career in the male-dominated field of construction work, as an electrician.
Waiters escorts the reader through a private tour of hell as she blows open the doors for an unauthorized peek inside the world of Mafia-controlled cities, labor unions, and life and death situations on job sites where women are anything but welcome.
Haunting and intensely reflective, her birth and formative years are eloquently paired with historical movements that profoundly changed the world, from J.F.K. to Martin Luther King, the rise of the Black Panther Movement, women's liberation, and hippies touting "free love and peace."
The timeless genius of this story has not only captured an essential slice of history, but has also defined it. Given such an achievement of literary brilliance, it is destined to become an American classic!
Cheryl desires to stress the importance of young girls taking math, science, engineering and technology during high school to become successful parents and inspiring women to start careers in a nontraditional setting with good pay.
