Still I Rise takes its title from a work by Maya Angelou and it resonates with the same spirit of an unconquerable soul, a woman who is captain of her fate. This book embodies the strength of character of the inspiring women profiled within. Each chapter outlines the fall and rise of great women heroes who smashed all obstacles, rather than let all obstacles smash them. Still I Rise offers hope to those undergoing their own Sisyphean struggles. Intrepid women heroes are the antithesis of the traditional damsels in distress; rather than waiting for the prince, they took salvation into their own hands.

Women leaders in history celebrated in this book include: Madame C. J. Walker, first female American millionaire; Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s first lady of freedom; Betty Shabazz, civil rights activist; Nellie Sachs, Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize recipient; Selma Lagerlof, first woman Nobel laureate; Fannie Lou Hamer, American voting rights activist; Bessie Coleman, first African American female pilot; Wilma Rudolph, first woman to win three Olympic gold medals; Sonia Sotomayor, first Hispanic Supreme Court justice; Wangari Maathai, Nobel Prize winner; Winnifred Mandela, freedom fighter; Lois Wilson, founder of Al-Anon; Roxanne Quimby, co-founder of Burt’s Bees, and many more!
