The inspiring true stories of eight ground-breaking women who changed history.

Looking back through the 20th century, award-winning author Penny Colman crafts a compelling nonfiction collection about women who were bold enough to confront obstacles in STEM, education, civil rights and politics, and take risks in the pursuit of their dreams. Mary Gibson Henry risked her life following her passion for new botanical species. During the Civil War, Katharine Wormeley worked aboard hospital ships and helped to save the lives of many sick and wounded soldiers. With a promise and a dollar and a half, Mary McLeod Bethune opened a school for African American girls in Daytona Beach, Florida, in 1904, at a time when schools were segregated.

This book celebrates the intelligence, fortitude, and courage of women. For feminists of all ages and fans of the New York Times-bestselling Women In Science and Still I Rise: The Persistence of Phenomenal Women.
