The Greatest Women in History
The remarkable women who changed our world
- Science, engineering, activism, poetry, politics and physics. Women of all ages, and from all over the world, have excelled in these fields - and so many more - despite the barriers they've had to overcome. Many of these disciplines have been either completely closed to women, or so male-dominated that even being heard can be laborious. The Greatest Women in History is a celebration of just some of the inspirational women who put their mark on the world we live in, and reveals the stories, accomplishments and adventures of many brilliant women from throughout history. * Get to know the political trailblazers who achieved greatness through underground resistance or sheer determination. * Understand the amount of talent and hard work it takes to excel in mathematics and the sciences. * Meet the women who exploded into the world of art and redefined it, and discover the stories of the queens who defied expectations and ushered in golden ages. From Cleopatra, Mary Wollstonecraft and Florence Nightingale to Harriet Tubman, Frida Kahlo and Malala Yousafzai, learn of their achievements, backgrounds, characters and the little-known details that make them even more remarkable.
