"The women you'll meet in this book all have different stories to tell. ... Some women fought for equal rights for all people, or for women's right to vote. ... All of them grew up to change the world in some way, and we have them to thank for making our country a stronger, more exciting, and better place for all people to live in today."
Women Who Changed the World is a wonderful reference that features fifty of the most significant women in American history. It's not just a great book for Women’s History Month, but for the entire year. We enjoyed reading about the lives of groundbreaking journalist Nellie Bly, pioneering photojournalist Margaret Bourke-White, congresswoman Patsy Takemoto Mink, author Harper Lee, polar explorer Ann Bancroft, artist/architect Maya Lin and ballerina Misty Copeland.
