Rare though it may be, women have occupied the highest offices of their societies since ancient times. Queen Nefertiti, Catherine the Great, Queen Victoria, Margaret Thatcher, and Angela Merkel are all examples of women who earned power and respect from their leadership. Others have devoted their lives to fixing society’s problems. Students will learn about a wide variety of women who have made their mark on history through leadership and example. Also included are chapter notes, a glossary, a further reading section containing books and websites, and an index.
