Chosen from a group of 3,000 candidates, the 850 women featured in this book range from artists and writers to doctors, scientists, and activists of all backgrounds and philosophies. Each selection on the timeline includes a picture of the woman or what she invented, as well as a brief summary of her accomplishment.
