Women hold up half the sky and, most days, do even more of the heavy lifting including childbearing and child-rearing. (All after a long day at the office.) Women have always been strong- true heroes, oftentimes unacknowledged. As we shake off the last traces of a major patriarchal hangover, women are coming into their own. In the 21st Century, all women can fully embrace their fiery fempower and celebrate their no-holds-barred individuality. From the foremothers who blazed trails and broke barriers, to today's women warriors from sports, science, cyberspace, city hall, the lecture hall, and the silver screen, The Book of Awesome Women paints 200 portraits of powerful and inspiring role models for women and girls poised for the future. The amazing women inside include: Dian Fossey, Martina Navratilova, Sojourner Truth, Indira Ghandi, Aretha Franklin, Margaret Mead, Coretta Scott King, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Joan Baez, Eleanor Roosevelt, Coco Chanel, Anita Hill, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai, and many more. Now is the time to acknowledge the greatness of women!
