What I am most grateful for in Atlas Shrugged, when I think about having read it as a teenager, is Dagny Taggart’s departure from the traditional female sex role. Her role model of independence, and of setting & striving for her own individual goals, was a breath of fresh air. Such role models were in short supply during my childhood and teenage years, growing up female in the 1950s.
