Hillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, share the stories of the gutsy women who have inspired them - women with the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions, and get the job done. Throughout history and around the globe, women have overcome resistance to win victories that have made progress possible for all of us. That is the achievement of each of the women in this book. So how did they do it? The answers are as unique as the women themselves. Nearly every single one of these women was fiercely optimistic and had faith that their actions could make a difference. And they were right.
