This book profiles enterprising women whose lives have left an imprint on the world’s DNA. They have also impacted my life because their stirring stories led to Women Who Launch. Some of the profiled subjects are: Sarah Josepha Hale, the author of the beloved nursery rhyme “Mary Had a Little Lamb” and instituted a national day of Thanksgiving; Juliette Gordon Law, who founded the Girl Scouts of America; Mahalia Jackson, the driving force behind Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
Some modern movers and shakers are: Tarana Burke, the lady behind the ubiquitous “Me Too” campaign, Alicia Garza, who created the Black Lives Matter slogan; Krista Suh, whose handiwork was behind the pink pussy hat.
