Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. If your local library does not have the volumes listed below (as well as the other one you mentioned) they can order them through inter-library loan. There should not be a charge to you, but it can take some weeks to ship the volumes from library to library. It would cost us the same amount to access them online as it would you.
I know she is there because I checked my online subscription genealogy database. The type of information found those types of publications is fairly general so you may want to keep that in mind. It typically gives the name of the person, address, educational achievements, job title, what they are considered "famous" for. It may list husband and children. Unless someone is exceedingly accomplished (think prime ministers, presidents, Nobel laureates), the blurbs rarely go beyond 1-2 paragraphs.
As an amateur genealogist, I can tell you I've never heard of your ancestor and could find her in only one place. The only hit I got on her in all my databases was what I gave you in the answer above. She isn't listed in familysearch.org (the huge Mormon database), Rootsweb WorldConnect, or any of the other typical places you would find the name of someone accomplished.
Before I accept your answer, I have now been told that there are different editions for the Who's who of American Women. Do you know which edition that she is in???
As I originally posted, she is in the 7th and 8th editions for 1972-3 and 1974-5. You can refresh your memory of the citations below.
I've never heard of that publication, and neither had the librarian at our state library. Evidently it had a very small circulation since the librarian had never heard of it and could find no record of it in her resources.
