Summary
This is the story of four visionaries who profoundly shaped the world we live in today. Together, these women showed what one person speaking truth to power can do. With a keen eye for historical detail, Andrea Barnet traces the arc of each woman's career and explores how their work collectively changed the course of history. Consummate outsiders, each prevailed against powerful and mostly male adversaries while also anticipating the disaffections of the emerging counterculture. Print run 40,000
Summary
Discusses four influential women we thought we knew well—Jane Jacobs, Rachel Carson, Jane Goodall and Alice Waters—and how they spearheaded the modern progressive movement
