The 100 Most Influential Women of All Time ranks the outstanding contributions of the most influential women of all time -- from social reformers, women's rights activists, scientists, educators, and politicians to rulers, religious leaders, artists, performers, and sports figures -- women who have inspired, inflamed, changed attitudes, and changed the world.

The struggles and triumphs of these extraordinary women are revealed in an insightfully written, detailed compendium that reflects the full history of women. Here are just a few of the women profiled: Eleanor Roosevelt (1), Marie Curie (2), Harriet Tubman (9), the Virgin Mary (10), Jane Austen (13), Rosa Parks (17), Mother Teresa (33), Catherine the Great (46), Anne Frank (66), and Lucille Ball (100). The lives, the achievements, and the battles that the 100 have waged on behalf of women, society, and selfhood make compelling reading.

The 100 Most Influential Women is provocative and sure to generate controversy, debate, and discussion as readers eagerly scrutinize the list and each woman's ranking.
