To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
April 9, 2023 First, the cover I have with the women on it is more telling then this plain cover. Second, like all books about the women's accomplishments, its like go up hill with every story I read. Although, the women's story were amazing and pioneering it seem the more they try to advance there was always someone to push them back down again. I never understand why someone succeeding makes someone else feel inferior and determine to stop someone else. I like though that no matter who tries to deter them that women keep trying to be present in this world and still do extraordinary things when others say they can't or shouldn't. And I never understand why men in this book kept trying to make it about sex instead of being treated equally.
I very much enjoyed reading history centering on the female side. Some things I knew, but I was happy to find gems throughout of people I had never heard of or of things I didn't know about some of our more noted history makers. The one change I would make is to put pictures at the end of each chapter so that we can see them just after having read about them
Extremely well researched and informative book. The only reason I did not give it give stars was that the factual base and very depressing results did not make the book a " page turner. " It is worth reading.
Would have liked this book better if it was focused on fewer individuals and more in depth on contributions. The examples bounced all over the place, so it made keeping track of the people difficult. I read this for a book club, so I unfortunately had to labor through it.
