“A united nations of leading ladies of the past and present, commingled with luminaries in the arts, sciences, and annals of piracy. Leading off with full-page portraits of Aretha Franklin and Joan of Arc to herald her glittering gallery's expansive purview, Drimmer dishes up short introductions to over 100 strong women who either headed states or shone in academic or public spheres…A carefully diverse roster of "dominant dames" demonstrably capable of breaking gender molds…along with records and/or heads.” -- Kirkus
