Narrator Allyson Johnson takes listeners through the lives of four women whose work changed the world. Ella Baker, Jane Jacobs, Rachel Carson, and Betty Friedan are now known for their impact, but back when they pursued their goals, their ideas were considered radical. From civil rights (Baker) and city planning (Jacobs) to the destructive use of pesticides (Carson) and the oppression of women (Friedan), all four strongly influenced twentieth-century life and beyond. Johnson keeps listeners engaged with her crisp and thoughtful performance. Though the audiobook is packed with a great deal of information, her narration makes it an enjoyable experience that leaves listeners with new appreciation for four fascinating individuals.
