This is a collection of short stories of women who made a difference in our world.
This is an interesting book that offers interesting facts about women. The collection is diverse and offers historical, cutting edge, and cross cultural stories.
This is long to read. It isn't a narrative story.
Most of the people in our group didn't like it because it was not our style of reading. One person did like it, and she said it was because she likes to learn about new people, particularly people she has never heard of.
This is an excellent collection of great women with stories that are engaging. I like that they expand beyond the traditional great women. Some well-known figures are there (Marie Curie, Helen Keller), but there are also new heroes, like Ada Augusta Bryan, who was the world's first computer programmer ...in 1843.
These are vignettes that can be used to expand learning about each of the individual women. The stories have facts about these famous women and what they became. "It could be used for reports."
