    woman who got things done

    I've run across the phrase "Woman who got things done".

    What is the meaning of this expression?
    Is it an idiom or the name of a novel?

    Do you associate this phrase with some piece of literature?

    Hi Clark, I can't think of any piece of literature to which it might be associated neither is it an idiom that I have heard of.

    Hi Bhaisahab, a Happy New School Year!

    This phrase occurred in a stand alone sentence, in a grammar exercise.
    Now she was playing the practical, sensible Frisch, the "Woman who Got Things Done."
    I need to explain to my students the use of 'the" with Frisch. My guess is this Frisch should be a character in a play or something.
