Hollywood and James Dean have nothing on the women featured in Women Who Dare: Women for Change. Rebelling against conservative ideas about women, these leading ladies broke barriers in many bastions of society—from the workplace to the Capitol—and outperformed their male counterparts with contributions to charity, peace, and sexual equality. This book covers the efforts of women who defied the status quo by criticizing and challenging dogma, organizing and leading strikes, running for and attaining high office, and much more.
