about

Finalist Pacific Book Awards 2018: “Find motivation in your career and life with the amazing history of women entrepreneurship, activism, and leadership.” —Stylish Southern Mama

Women Who Launch is filled with inspiring true stories of women activists, artists, and entrepreneurs who launched some of the most famous companies, brands, and organizations today and changed the world. It is at once a collection of biographies and a testament of female empowerment.

Juliette Gordon Low showed what’s good for the goose is good for the gander when she created the Girl Scouts of America. Sarah Josepha Hale—authoress of Mary Had a Little Lamb—convinced Lincoln to launch a national day of thanks, while Anna Jarvis persuaded President Wilson to initiate a day in tribute of mothers. Estée Lauder revolutionized the cosmetics industry. The tradition of these Mothers of Invention continued when, compliments of knitter Krista Suh, the heads of millions were adorned with pink pussy-cat ears in the largest women’s march in history. These women who launched prove—in the words of Rosie the Riveter—“We can do it!”

In Women Who Launch, readers will find:

  • The stories behind renowned companies, brands, and organizations and the diverse women who launched them.
  • Empowering quotes from strong women and those who refused to be kept down.
  • Motivation to all women who want to succeed in their careers, launch companies, and change the world.

“These soaring stories will inspire you to live your dreams!” —Becca Anderson, author of The Book of Awesome Women
