Women Who Changed History Series


Although a vast majority of the most famous figures throughout history have been men, there have also been many women, as far back as ancient times, who have held power and made an extraordinary impact on the world. This series profiles six women who defied convention—whether by ruling their country, leading a military campaign, or tackling social injustice. Their actions shaped their communities and societies, from ancient Egypt to medieval France to the antebellum American South, and their stories will inspire readers to reconsider their notions of what constitutes a strong leader.
