These women simply followed 'their hearts, talents and dreams. They didn't listen when people said they couldn't do something. They dared to be different.' Their stories are told concisely and effectively on bright double page spreads with appealing illustrations.
Amongst some more familiar names- Emmeline Pankhurst, Mary Seacole, Anne Frank- there are some less well known women as well- Sacagawea, Agent Fifi, Gertrude Ederle. The emphasis is on following your dreams and changing the world in your way!
