This is a wonderful collection of mini-biographies of women who have made history. Cynthia Chin-Lee offers glimpses into the lives of a wide variety of women from different time periods and locations throughout the world. These women made strides in science, literature, politics, society and many other areas. They were pioneers of their times, many risked imprisonment and persecution for their work. All were brave, intelligent and determined. I especially loved the mixed media collages that accompany each bio. They are beautiful!
