Women who changed the world
Science, mathematics, art, poetry, and politics. Women have excelled in these fields – and so many more – despite the barriers they’ve had to overcome. Many of these disciplines have been either completely closed to women, or so male-dominated that even being heard can be laborious. Queens regnant have had to defy the stereotypical trappings of gender, or wrest power from grasping statesmen to rule their countries and empires. From Harriet Tubman to Frida Kahlo, Cleopatra to Marie Curie, History’s Greatest Women collects together the stories of inspirational women from around the world, revealing the challenges they faced, the accomplishments they achieved, and adventures they went on.
