Overview

Ladies First is a fascinating account of some of history’s most inspiring women. In addition to the main stories, readers will find mini biographies of other incredible, trailblazing women across a number of fields.

Among the female firsts are Pharoah Hatshepsut, a woman who ruled as king, not as queen; Christine de Pisan, Europe’s first professional female writer; Bertha von Suttner, the first woman to win the Nobel peace prize, in 1905; and Valentina Tereshkova, Russian astronaut and in 1963 the first woman in space.

Adventurers and athletes, politicians and scientists, artists and educators, revolutionaries and criminals– Ladies First celebrates some extraordinary women who have singularly and collectively cleared a path for other females to follow.

This book is a good read for anyone interested in history. The stories are brief and plentiful. The historical accounts are well rounded with an emphasis on the trials and tribulations that each woman experienced in their lives. I have recommended this to all friends, regardless of gender. To me it reaffirms the difficulties and human condition that exists that we all have to deal with, but not always on a political level or with our lives at stake, literally.

A joy to read, this book introduces you to amazing women through all of time. Indeed, the broad scope is one of the things that differentiates this compilation of mini-biographies. Each bio begins with an exciting story that captures the character of each special women. While readers of all ages and genders will enjoy this book, it is MANDATORY reading for adolescent girls who are just beginning to figure out who they are, where they fit in the world, and what is possible for them. Well done Ms. Santa Lucia!
