Publisher's Summary

Most of the time, when you sit down with a book of history, you are going to be reading about men. Men who win wars and men who lose wars. Men who create empires, and men who destroy empires. Men who author great works and design great machines that change the course of the world.

The thing is, half the people in the world are women. What about them? Women have also done a lot of creating, and destroying, authoring, and designing, right alongside the men; but unless they were queens, like Elizabeth I of England, or Catherine the Great of Russia, or notorious villainesses like Jezebel or Mata Hari, you don't hear as much about them. Nevertheless, women have been there all along, doing things that made a difference.

This book is about eight of those women who were born and lived in the time between the beginning of the Industrial Revolution until the present day:

A great start!

What an excellent hook! Biographical cameos of 5 plus 3 remarkable women who earned their places in history but have been ignored in curricula for far too long. It is hoped after reading these brief summaries of their lives old and young alike will head off to their librarians or Google to learn more about how women of earlier times and in several countries can continue to inspire us today.
The audio is performed excellently by JD Kelly.
