    An Inspiring Collection of Interesting Women

    Cynthia Chin-Lee has collected twenty-six inspiring stories of women from a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures, eras in history, and talents to create a moving message of the ability of ordinary women to make an extraordinary impact on our world. Chin-Lee selects a woman for each letter of the alphabet and includes a brief biographical description and a powerful quote from each. Some of the women are very well-known, while others are not as famous, yet just as inspiring. The book is beautifully illustrated with unique collages that reflect each woman's photgraph and special contribution to history. This book would be a wonderful book to share with young girls when encouraging them to think about their own special gifts, talents, and dreams and the potential they too have to change the world around them.

    portraits of memorable, influential women from all backgrounds

    There's the familiar, expected, notable women--the flier Amelia Earhart, the black author Zora Neale Hurston, the artist Frida Kahlo, the philanthropist Eleanor Roosevelt. But there's also a number of accomplished lesser-known women and ones who have achieved recognition in recent years who are not yet seen as regulars in the circle of historically significant women. Thus, one finds the architect Maya Lin and the figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi. Outstanding women from diverse ethnic backgrounds and active in diverse fields, from labor unions to science to entertainment, are included in the twenty-six for each letter of the alphabet. Each woman is pictured in a collage-like illustration with objects representing what she is recognized for.
