Women Who Made a Difference

History and the modern world are full of women who have done extraordinary things in all areas of life – art, campaigning, science, medicine, sport, space travel and fashion. But their stories have not always been told, and these brave, determined women have not always been recognized or spoken about. From the 1800s to the present day, from South Korea to Spain, this book tells the stories of nine fearless women, and shows the great differences they have made to the world around us.
