"Thank you, Anita Kunz, for this work of art! I have a deep appreciation and admiration for how this book came to be: out of your searching, out of your desire to learn about and know these lives more deeply. Thank you for painting these extraordinary women, for portraying their individuality, strength, determination, courage, perseverance, and their particular beauty. I've spent the past twenty-three years of my career playing a kick-ass woman on TV: Kick-ass women are all around us and this book is a beautiful, unforgettable reminder. I loved spending time with this sisterhood."
--Mariska Hargitay

"Anita Kunz reminds us that women's history is the world's history. She reminds us that much of the culture we take for granted exists by the grace of women's ingenuity. This is a book that demands that we continue to interrogate why women and their historical contributions are, all too often, overlooked."
--Roxane Gay, from the Foreword
