100 exceptional women who knew how to impose themselves and who have forever changed the face of the world! Lucy, a 3.2 million year old "hominid", is also called Dinknesh which, in Ethiopian, means "you are wonderful". Wonderful women who succeed in imposing themselves as well as in advancing mentalities, there have been some, and there will be some as long as injustices and discriminations towards women exist.
They are numerous, from all social backgrounds, all times and all countries to have changed the course of history, from Zenobia, who from Palmyra, defied the Roman Empire, to the Finnish Vigdis Finnbogadottir, first elected president: each one, in her own way, has dared! From Tomoé Gozen, the first female samurai in the 12th century, to Olympe de Gouge, who wrote "The Right of Women and the Citizen" during the French Revolution, to the Swedish woman Selma Lagerlöf, who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1909, Marie Curie, who contributed to revolutionizing science in the 20th century, or Malala Yousafzai, who put her life on the line so that young girls could go to school, this book traces the lives of these exceptional women who, whatever their field of activity, were able to impose themselves in a world dominated by men.
In doing so, they have forever changed the face of the world. Although they represent a little more than half of Humanity, there are still countries where women do not count. Fortunately, some will still dare and change the laws. Like their sisters of the previous centuries, by their intelligence, their courage and their convictions, they will upset the archaic moral order. Through these portraits, Nathalie Kauffmann shows us how women participated, for the first time, in areas of society previously reserved for men and how they now play an active role.
It is the history of these fights, as different as the women who have carried them, that are valued in this fascinating book.
