Thank you for the opportunity to review this book in exchange for honest feedback. I thought this was a very interesting look into the dynamic world we live in. I was intrigued by the ways in which these women adapt and pioneer their causes. At the same time, they achieved greatness in careers and hobbies. Excellent book with a clear message and aim.
