A host of other women follow: actresses, entertainers, politicians, teachers, businesswomen, and historians.

Tonya Bolden recounts their lives in clear (but often tart) prose. Although Bolden includes many justly famous women, one strength of this book is the number of profiles about largely unknown women, such as former slaves who in the 1930s recalled their bondage for interviewers.
