An important contribution to the contemporary discussion of gender and power; this work presents more than eighty women who; in the face of significant obstacles; acted courageously to change the world. From Cleopatra to Angela Merkel; Harriet Tubman to Eva Peron; and Empress Dowager Cixi to Joan of Arc; this book focuses on powerful women who changed the course of history across the centuries and around the globe. Leaders of military operations; activists for social change; iron-fisted rulers; or the voice of the people; these strong-willed women continue to fascinate and inspire. From the warrior Queen Nzinga and her Amazonian guards to Native American health advocate Wilma Pearl Mankiller; or from the androgynous Sultan Razia to the daring Virgin Queen Elisabeth I; these complex women engraved their names into the chronicles of history. The text--richly illustrated by portraits; photographs; and mythical scenes--recounts their stories; reframes how they have been represented and remembered; and highlights the attributes of their power. Few women leaders have gained and retained places of power throughout history. In order to overcome misogyny; archaic laws governing inheritance; and the constraints of religious fervor; the women featured here incarnate exceptional determination and strength of character. Revered and reviled in equal measure; their stories--often riveting tales of courage in the face of injustice--offer an alternate perspective on the traditional histories of courage; vision; and leadership.
