Courtney Patterson's clear and steady narration illuminates these accounts of girls and women solving problems in innovative and resourceful ways. The audiobook uses examples spanning hundreds of years and covers female founders of organizations that assist with social issues globally. In 1832, Elizabeth Stott opened consignment shops for women's financial empowerment. In recent years, Lesley Marincola has worked to create affordable solar energy, empowering people in rural areas. Patterson's subtle delivery conveys sympathy for the victims of social injustice. She speaks with a sense of admiration for the women who sought to improve the lives of others. The call to action will inspire listeners of all ages to follow in these women's footsteps. The list of resources at the end provides a great starting place.
