Each woman's story affirms a belief in humanity's capacity to make changes and supports the dream that a better future is possible.
Creative and visionary women whose stories can bring transformation as 21st century models for us, our daughters, our boys, and our men. Steal the time out of your busy life to read this inspiring book."
