This book is full of interesting little tidbits about women throughout history; I really appreciated learning more about what some of the older feminists did and the progress they spurred. Sometimes conservatives think of feminists as being just power-hungry, man-eating, bossy biatches, but there are so many that did courageous acts, changing societal norms and enabling me to live a better life being a woman today.

It isn't riveting, by any means, but it does keep you interested. Like one of my friends said, it feels a bit scattered, but it is still a good read.
