Women need to stop waiting for the world to change and start changing it, says Nell Merlino, author of "Stepping out of Line: Lessons for Women Who Want It Their Way in Life, in Love, and at Work." She says she got the idea for the book while waiting in line for the ladies' room. "Women get stuck in roles that limit what we believe about our own power and importance," she said. "We need to step out of those roles so we can start making our own rules, creating our own ideas of how successful we can be, and defining satisfaction for ourselves."
