"A populous gallery of courageous, independent women" -- Kirkus Reviews
"Here are the brief biographies of 52 women who have one thing in common--they did not allow fear or social pressure to stop them from achieving their individual accomplishments. Every one-page biography is accompanied by a stellar illustration that captures the spirit and attitude of each woman and provides visual reference to their times and their professions. Whether read as a cohesive body of stories or as individual brief biographies, this book is a worthwhile study in tenacity." -- Booklist
"Young readers ages eight and up will find wonderful role models [in Women Who Dared], and the compelling stories in these pages may give them the impetus to try new things and take the steps they need to create their own daring moments in life. The writing is snappy and the illustrations fun. This is a winner." -- Manhattan Book Review
