Brief writings from an array of girls and women who are trailblazers in their fields, discussing the barriers they've faced, the battles they've fought, and the dreams they've brought to life. The entries are arranged by decade, from Dolores Huerta learning how organizations contribute to the community in the 1920s, to Mattie Johnston explaining that no one every told her she couldn't do anything "because I was a girl" in the 2000s.
