Jeffrey (American Inventors of the 20th Century, 1995, etc.) makes eclectic choices; one challenge of including contemporary women is that they are not static and keep moving ahead (Alice Rivlin is profiled as Clinton's budget director, but was recently nominated for the Federal Reserve Board). These ambitious, determined women struggled, persevered, and succeeded. Any one of them is a good role model for young reeaders, but to have all of them covered in one volume has particular impact.
