This book is a collection of inspiring stories about incredible women who made history but seldom received the acknowledgment they deserved, women of all colors, eras, and nations. Each day the reader is introduced to a new woman in a short yet fascinating biographical portrait--a quick life-affirming read to dip in and out of throughout the year.
