    1. This was an ok book. It told about a few women I haven't heard of before, mostly because their stories were not all that exceptional for the time they lived in. They were honest about Betty Ross but declared that she was a remarkable woman anyway which was a bit dubious. There were a number of women's lives highlighted in not a huge amount of detail. More detail and fewer women would have been of more interest I think.

    2. This book is very inspiring and a quick read. It tells of some women I have never heard of before and let's you decide who you like the best. Also the format is great.
