Since the dawn of humanity, women have changed the world as leaders, warriors, athletes, innovators, reformers, advocates, activists, and scholars. They have ruled empires, traversed the skies, fronted political and social movements, produced prolific literature, art, and music, and pioneered ground-breaking inventions and discoveries.
This wonderfully illustrated full-color hardback explores many different cultural systems and historical eras - from First Nation women resisting gender-based violence to reproductive rights and queer feminism - shining a light on the influential role that women have played in challenging and resisting gender stereotypes and inequalities through creative strategies.
Julia Morris tells how the story of women's history, identity, and influence is a record of dynamism, brilliant creativity, and determination where women of all backgrounds have dreamt big and broken barriers. Featuring figures such as Cleopatra, Sirimavo Bandaranaike, Katherine Johnson, Mary Wollstonecraft, Toni Morrison, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and many more, this book explores the triumphs and challenges evident in the amazing achievements and legacies of these heroes past and present provides the foundations for the modern heroes of today.
Illustrated with hundreds of fascinating contemporary artworks, illustrations and photographs, this reference guide is an inspiring study of women across history and their battle for equality.
