Great Women Leaders (Women's Hall of Fame) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since The Days of ancient Egypt, women have demonstrated their skills as leaders. The last couple of hundred years, however, have seen increasing numbers of self-made women of distinction take their place on the world stage, many in positions of leadership. This new title in the Women's Hall of Fame series profiles a fine selection of these trailblazers past and present. They include Roberta Jamieson, chief of Six Nations of the Grand River Territory; Golda Meir, first female prime minister of Israel; Marie Therese Casgrain, first woman to head a political party in Quebec; Rosa Parks, who refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white man; and Wangari Maathai of Kenya, first woman in central or eastern Africa to hold a PhD and head a university department. Educational, inspiring and fun!

Since the days of ancient Egypt, women have demonstrated their skills as leaders. The last couple of hundred years, however, have seen increasing numbers of self-made women of distinction take their place on the world stage, many in positions of leadership.
