Women can change the world. They have already done so in the past, they continue to do it today, and they will always do it in the future, following the example of extraordinary female figures that were capable of challenging conventions and changing history.
This book relates the exciting lives of fifty of yesterday and today's outstanding women whose achievements left a deep mark on society. It tells about queens and artists, politicians and fashion designers, actresses and scientists, explorers and entrepreneurs, sportswomen and ordinary women who, courageously and creatively, have given their lives meaning. They pursued their ambitions and showed strongly and passionately that anyone can achieve their dreams, even those that the world considers inappropriate or impossible for a woman. Their lives are often marked by successes and triumphs, but also by tragedies and ordeals, as thrilling and moving as the plots of great novels.
Among the many biographies, the book presents the figures of Maria Montessori, Emmeline Pankhurst, Amelia Earhart, Coco Chanel, Simone de Beauvoir, Estee Lauder, Rosa Parks, Eva Peron, Josephine Baker, Jane Goodall, Mary Quant, Zaha Hadid, Malala Yousafzai, and many others.
