Overview

This groundbreaking collection profiles nearly 50 women across a range of
endeavors: business, politics, science, technology, sports, entertainment
and more. A companion to TIME's multi-platform documentary, the book
includes 15 first person deep-dives into the lives of influential women
such as General Lori Robinson, the first woman to lead troops into combat,
Kathryn Sullivan, the first woman to walk in space, and Aretha Franklin,
the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Many
others, including Oprah Winfrey, Madeline Albright, and Sheryl Sandberg
offer their own personal reflections, thematic quotes and perspectives on
balance, perseverance and strength.

 
Each first-person piece or quote is accompanied by a distinctive portrait
by photographer Luisa Dorr ― set up and taken on her iPhone. Others
included in this unforgettable volume: Serena Williams, Ellen Degeneres,
Loretta Lynch, Shonda Rimes, Nancy Pelosi, Rita Moreno, Cindy Sherman and
Mo’Ne Davis.

 
With a stirring introduction by Nancy Gibbs, herself a pioneer as the
first female editor of TIME magazine, this is an inspirational book for
all women and men.
