A Must Have At Home Book!!!!!

As a Latina Caribbean female who migrate from Central America, becane a US Naturalized Citizen,and served in the US Air Force / Pentagon, I am amazed about the wealth of contributions past and present women provided to the history of The United States of North America. Like most of these women, I have encountered challenges that I helped me become stronger giving me the motivation to keep on going and not giving up about my goals. This book opened my eyes to endless possibilities. I will purchase the hard copy to have in my library so my children; especially my daughter reads it.

Good historical information

I cannot believe another reviewer gave this book a negative review because it had a non-biblical content. That’s embarrassing. There was a lot of good information here about interesting women throughout American history. I do wish there was more information, but now I can go research the women on my own that I am more interested in. It’s a good place to start at least.

Inspiring!

This is a book that inspires you and makes you feel proud of being a women. So many times women are ignored in history and here are 50 women that have made history and paved the way for us. Women of different backgrounds and throughout American history are included here. The narration is also perfect! Ms. Plummer only adds to how spectacular this book is. It’s included in the Plus catalog. Highly recommended!!!

Sad and Disappointing

I was so excited to hear the brief history of these amazing women but was so underwhelmed. One minute of very brief notes about the woman and then a deluge of random dates and facts. Sad and disappointing, enough said

It doesn’t do them justice


I was so excited when I saw this and started to listen to it. Then I realized that each women only had about three minutes. The women did amazing things that require more the three minutes to talk about!
