This book tells several of those stories, illustrating not only the qualities that those women possessed that supported their interests but also the steps they took to pursue their goals.

The Lives of Great Women Leaders and You tells the inspiring stories of more than twenty women and girls in math and science, society and culture, government and politics, and the arts, finishing with an extensive chapter titled "Finding Your Own Way to Lead."
