This audio compilation recounts significant contributions made by dozens of women from the seventeenth century to the present to improve quality of life in New York City. Many of these women are well known--Edith Wharton, Brooke Astor, Ella Fitzgerald, Anna Wintour, Debbie Harry--while others are less familiar. With clear enunciation and an engaged tone, narrator Tracey Leigh introduces these influential leaders. While many of the short chapters present the accomplishments of multiple women, Leigh's skilled phrasing and assured pacing help orient listeners to each individual's achievement. The scope of these contributions is broad, encompassing advances in public health, public education, urban planning, the financial sector, the arts, and many other public and private domains.
