Providing an overview of the topics of interest in this book, Bill and Rachel outline their content in the Introduction – ‘Women throughout history have fought for their rights and the rights of others, defended their countries during wartime, healed the sick and wounded, invented new technologies, led countries, made inspiriting art…In the 18th and 19th centuries, many women took a passive role in society because that’s what men dictated to them. Most women during this period remained primarily in the domestic sphere, and the men who surrounded them treated them as property. But some women refused to be passive, even though that’s what society demanded of them, and took control of their freedom…’ This book underlines the impact and importance of fifteen of these significant women.
Bill and Rachel offer an outstanding set of mini-biographies of the following heroines, some well known, some perhaps unknown - Ching Shih, Florence Nightingale, Alice Paul, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Hedy Lamarr, Frida Kahlo, Huda Sha’arawi, Nancy Wake, Gertrude Bell, Henrietta Lacks, The Mirabal Sisters, Malala Yousafzai, Marie Curie, Sojourner Truth, and Billie Jean King. Each individual is honored for the public reason for which they are designated as heroines, but Bill and Rachel add significant insights into each person’s special traits in sparkling ‘Did You Know?’ sections, as well as some fine drawings of each honored woman.
These are fifteen important women, but there are so many more: hopefully Bill and Rachel will continue this series. Not only is the book entertaining – it is also very instructive. For those familiar with Bill O’Neill’s (and now Rachel Walsh’s) talent for tickling the brain, this book is a must read – one of the best. For those who are simply looking for solid entertaining reading and inspiration to while away the hours, welcome to the field experts! Highly recommended – especially during these times… Grady Harp, September 20
My favorite thing about Bill’s books is his section on Did you know? After the main story on each woman Bill always has a Did You Know section of incredible facts.
I like to read the whole book initially but I always find my self rereading the Did You Know Facts over and over again. So if you are like me and you enjoy learning fascinating facts about fascinating women. Read this book. Ruth Bader Ginsburg & Florence Nightingale are just 2 of the women in this book and that alone makes it worth reading.
I love the layout of the material, they have a drawing of the person, a brief history and then my favorite section, Did You Know?. I was not aware that the Supreme Court did not have a female restroom until 1993 after Ruth Bader Ginsburg was appointed to the court. The material information stated she beat cancer 4 times but the media states 5 times. I’m not sure who is correct. Still very informative and entertaining. -
Every time I pick up this author I learn something. Very easy read, my 10 year grandson reads this author and enjoys it. You won’t be disappointed.
Top reviews from other countries
I read it, I like it, I want more from the author.
I don't write reviews that describe the content of the book as I don't see the point of telling everyone the storyline, plot or subject as I feel it spoils the book if you already know what it's about or what's going to happen.
As with a vast number of Kindle books there might be the odd spelling and punctuation errors.
After reading hundreds of Kindle books of all types and subjects you get use to them and they become less noticeable, unless there is an effect on the storyline.
The more these errors effect the reading of the book the less stars I give it even if the story is a good one.
Some of the books I read have been gifted to me by its author for review and my reviews and ratings are not biased in anyway.
