   Too much: banal info overload with no depth, the writing style is exhausting
It is hard to take seriously a book like this, but I tried. The book is a breathy gossip column style. Mother Jones, the co-founder of the Industrial Workers of the World, is now known as Mo Rising Jo and she is allocated equal text with Yoko Ono. Former tennis great Martina Navratilova, who was named the best player of the year for 30 years, receives a paragraph of text dealing with her sexuality. It also includes some of the book's most inventive and original titles, including "shero," "femtastic," "herstory" and "herstory." I bought this book for my teenager and after reading it, I decided it was too banal for a teenager. I give it one star for me to a couple of news-to-me historic figures, introducing the Night Witches, World War II's most feared air raiders.

   Has some adult content but in all is a good book
I got this book for my 12 year old niece. I like how it's written in sections. However, there are some racy content in it that if I had known about it I would have reconsidered. So I just bookmarked past the beginning and told her it was boring introduction stuff and hoped for the best, Mr. D.L.A. The rest of the book was pretty good, too, he said.

   Great Gift
It was a present from my mother. Blair said Jennette had really enjoyed the experience. The book is a collection of informational and inspirational stories. It doesn't necessarily have to be read back to back, Rodale said.

It was a Christmas present from my niece and she absolutely loves it. It's very informative and educational while keeping the mind occupied of a 10 year old.

   Buy this book for every girl or woman you know!
This book is very good. I thought I knew about a lot of strong women, but I still found a lot to learn. It was uplifting to know that so many of my team members have made such important contributions to this country, Mr. Kennedy said. We don't know everything about this, Rumsfeld said.

   Excellent
As with any role model, success requires both inspiration and empowerment. A look at the lives of dynamic, adventurous and creative women throughout the world. Pauley, Jr., praised the book.
