This title is suitable for ages 9 to 12 years. 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 book 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 (and third in the world); Marie Therese Casgrain, first woman to head a political party in Quebec (CCF Party, which later became the NDP); and Wangari Maathai of Kenya, the first woman in central or eastern Africa to hold a PhD or head a university department, a member of parliament, and founder of successful grassroots movements on issues of the environment and sustainable development. This title is educational, inspiring and fun!
