For more than 200 years American women have challenged injustice and chauvinism, going into workhouses, taverns, and the halls of government to campaign for charity, temperance, peace, and, more recently, sexual equality. Women Who Dare: Women for Change connects the stories of two dozen women who defied expectations—speaking out, holding high office, leading strikes—and whose personal lives were often as inspiring as their public deeds.
