Although war has long been considered the domain of men, women have courageously fought for their families, their nations, and their causes—whether on the battlefield or off. The women profiled in this inspiring resource have proven that courage doesn’t have a gender and that fighting for a just cause is very much a woman’s issue. Also included are chapter notes, a glossary, a further reading section containing books and websites, and an index.
