SHOWING HOW WOMEN SHAPE THE WORLD
Sixty inspirational women, from many walks of life. All have changed the world in a variety of fields. Among them are politicians and artists, journalists and teachers, engineers and campaigners, firefighters and film stars. Together they form an arresting gallery of portraits, each one illustrated with original photography by Brigitte Lacombe.
Some have led their professions; some have broken new ground for women; some have inspired changes through relentless endeavour. All were chosen for their ambitions and achievements and all tell their stories in their own words.
For girls, it can be hard to identify role models in our society. This book will help and inspire women everywhere to realize their hopes and ambitions.
"The Female Lead book profiles women from all walks of life; from politicians to artists, journalists to teachers, and engineers to campaigners. This is not a book about celebrities, though many of the subjects are well-known. These are women who have led their field, who have broken the mould to achieve, or who have inspired changes through relentless endeavour"
