This book is formatted having one women per page in chronological order from BC 1483-AD 1959. Nice, concise introduction to each person.
There is much need for books about influential women so I am glad this is available. However, it is disappointing that it seems to have been made hastily. The drawings are unappealing and I am not sure what the process was to select the '100 women who shaped World History' was as the women are mainly from Europe and America apart from a few. Don't claim 'world history' if it is not.

100 WOMEN WHO SHAPED WORLD HISTORY, Gail Meyer Rolka, 1994, Bluewood Books. Fascinating!!! Begins with Queen Makare Hatshepsut (d. 1483 BC) and ends with Rigoberta Menchu (b 1959). Brief biographies of these 100 women. I came across this book while seeking something else on Amazon.smile (I get lucky that way, sometimes). It's a thin paperback, but, Oh, so worth it. These are amazing women we should know about and remember. five stars.

With this book I have learned a lot about women that influenced so much on this world. Their bios are short but very interesting. Thanks Y.Castilla

Enjoyed reading information on impact women have made throughout history. Good read for anyone that is interested in women's history.

Very good! Brief and useful! I was looking a book for Emilie du Chatelet ( an amazing woman in Renaissance) and found it! Sophie Germain, Helen Keller, Agatha Cristie, Ypatia and many other great women! Scientists, poets, artists, writers, wives, leaders, teachers, they shape the world history but they are not mentioned! As Voltaire said about Emilie du Chatelet << she was a great man whose only fault was that she was a woman>>. I only wish Lise Meitner was among them!

The book is like a summary of "book reports" on women throughout history. It's not engaging or exciting to read. I am disappointed.

The pictures in this book are very off putting. Yuck! If I had realized what the pictures looked like I would never have bought this book.
