"Tarr-Whelan encourages flexibility, willingness to mentor other women, and assertive drive to push for more women in leadership positions." -Vanessa Bush, Booklist"The emphasis on truly changing organizational and societal norms (from donating money to charitable causes that share your goals to actively mentoring and hiring other women) is, in the end, what truly sets this title apart from other recent "women in business" titles." -Sarah Statz Cords, The Reader's Advisor Online (for Library Journal)

"Straightforward, empathetic and balanced, this compelling guide tells the stories that women positively engaged in changing the world will recognise. Though American in background, the messages are international and well researched. From the time of Hypatia of Alexandria through to the present day, women like Linda Tarr-Whelan do make a difference. Let's listen."
