Women Who Changed the World (Hardback)Ros Horton (author), Sally Simmons (author)
Hardback 208 Pages
A celebration of the achievements of womankind, this book honours fifty amazing women and the incredible impact they have had on our world. From empire builders and healers to daring explorers and iconoclastic thinkers, these are moving stories of dedication, conflict, tragedy and triumph, as dramatic as any fiction. Each will both inspire readers and provide a greater understanding of the crucial role these women played in shaping our culture and history, and the debt we owe them. Presented chronologically, from antiquity to the modern day, each of these remarkable women's stories is told with a complete biography, a time-line setting their achievement in its historical context, and a selection of little-known facts and intimate insights, alongside an iconic black-and-white image and one of their inspiring quotations. "Great Women in History" pays homage to fifty of the most influential and admired women of all time, including: Cleopatra, Mary Magdalene, Boudicca, Joan of Arc, Catherine the Great, Elizabeth I, Emmeline Pankhurst, Jane Austen, Amelia Earhart, Marie Curie, Florence Nightingale, Mother Teresa, Virginia Woolf, Eleanor Roosevelt, Helen Keller, Anne Frank, Katharine Hepburn, Simone de Beauvoir, Rosa Parks, Madame Mao, Eva Peron, Margaret Thatcher, Marilyn Monroe, Germaine Greer, Billie Jean King, Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, and Princess Diana.
