The Women Who Changed the World series profiles inspiring, influential women who challenged stereotypes, overcame barriers, and opened doors. Some were the first women in their fields. Some rose to the top of professions, companies, or nations previously run or dominated by men. Some were activists, some were queens, some quietly did their jobs. Each title includes a diverse selection of 12 women who had a lasting impact: on the arts, business, education, entertainment, equality and social justice, the media, medicine, the military, politics, science and technology, the space industry, and sports. From Simone Biles, the world's best gymnast, to basketball legend Maya Moore, tennis icon Serena Williams, and hijabwearing fencing champ Ibtihaj Muhammad, this book profiles 12 women in sports from around the world. Each chapter includes attentiongrabbing photos, biographical details, and fascinating facts. Sidebars go beyond the basics, and prompts invite readers to think for themselves. An Out of the Shadows section features minibios of recordsetting, medalwinning women who never got the recognition they deserved.
