Description

League of Women Voters of the United States A celebration of passionate, heroic women who represent the expanding power and influence of women in American public life. In this dynamic collection, twenty-two extraordinary leaders share inspiring personal stories that reflect the universal desire to effect change in the world. Representing the nation's ethnic diversity, these outstanding women demonstrate that everyone can truly make a difference.True to Ourselves presents a remarkable mix of women who have confronted tough choices, challenges, and tests of their own character with determination and conviction. From polar explorer Ann Bancroft and Smith College president Ruth J. Simmons to second lady Tipper Gore, activist Sarah Brady, and politicians Carol Moseley-Braun, Polly B. Baca, and Patsy T. Mink, the contributors describe lives enriched by family, career, and their own commitment to the larger public good. They reveal turning points that compelled them to change their lives and share their concerns about the unfinished business of building an equal and inclusive society. Their stories and examples will inspire readers to face challenges in their own lives and fulfill their dreams and aspirations.
