This collection of biographies profiles ten creative business leaders who have proven that entrepreneurial women can not only succeed in business, they can also bring about positive change. Against all odds, African-American Madam C.J. Walker, born in 1867, became a self-made millionaire who promoted civil rights and opposed racism. Designer Dorothy Shaver, The Body Shop founder, Dame Anita Roddick, and high-finance expert Naina Lal Kidwai built businesses based on integrity, responsibility and respect. Among the growing number of women entrepreneurs making a name for themselves are Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, innovative mobility products developer Sue Chen, Tanzanian aviation founder Susan Mashibe, Aboriginal media promoter Nicole Robertson, construction company president Kelsey Ramsden, and water-tech CEO Jodi Glover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Informative and Entertaining Ms. Bryant's book is informative and entertaining, a great read on a cold winter day!  In the book you'll find a great range of stories of woman entrepreneurs.  It makes you wonder why there is still such a discrepancy between men and woman in the higher echelons of the corporate world.  Hopefully, the book will inspire a new group of young women to break the glass ceiling forever!
