This beautifully illustrated book features true stories of 40 women creators all over the world. The women featured ranges from inventors, artists, scientists, and writers who inspire and educates people. The book includes the famous architect Zaha Hadid, actor Hedy Lamar, physicist Chien-Shiung Wu, and many others.
The book was artistically done and written beautifully. I found the book to be inspiring and enjoyable to read. However, I found the book to focus a lot on women who had an impact on the arts and creative fields. I would have loved to read more about women who made an impact in the STEM field. Overall, a good book for young girls to let them know everything is possible. And, I found it a good read for any adult who needs a bit of inspiration in their life.
