This book is a good introduction and overview to a wide variety of prominent women working and teaching in the design field (mainly in the USA) as of 2008. I appreciate the time, effort and I'm sure overwhelming job it was to take on such an undertaking and am glad they did. As mentioned in the introduction, this is a good place to start and I hope that other authors will explore the contribution of women designers over the last half century in greater detail.
