Discover the lives of the women that forever changed the course of history!
This book contains the fundamental history, early influences, life changing events, and lasting impact of historical figures such as Eve, Cleopatra, Isabel the Catholic, Marie Curie, Winnie Mandela, Benazir Bhutto, Juana Azurduy, and many others!
The 21st century stands witness to the achievements of some of the most influential women in the world. And yet, no matter how today's movers and shakers stand in contemporary rankings, how can we compare them to the giants of the past, the women who took history in their bare hands and bent it to their will? Whether they strode upon the stages of military power or at the altars of religious belief, they have left their marks on civilization.
Eva, Juana Azurduy, Isabel the Catholic, Marie Curie, Winnie Mandela, and Benazir Bhutto were women whose lives changed the course of history. They would have been remarkable in any era in which they were born. But by living when they did, each defined the times in which they lived. Their actions transformed the imprint of their countries and the world.

The women who changed the world
I really enjoyed the subject of this book. I listened to the audio. I had difficulty because the women's stories kind of ran together, making it difficult to keep each story separate from another.
