Virginia State Senator Janet Howell, along with her daughter-in-law Theresa, has written this collection of biographies of 50 women in leadership positions in the United States. Narrator Cassandra Campbell speaks formally in her performance of this audiobook, which examines each woman's significance and prestige. The women range from the contemporary, like Kamala Harris and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, to the historical, like Abigail Adams and Mary McLeod Bethune. The women are appropriately diverse with regard to ethnicity, political leaning, and professional positions served. Campbell's voice is compelling enough to keep listeners engaged with this audiobook, even through the repetitive lists of "power symbols" (graphic icons in the print book) that are assigned to each woman following her biography--some examples of which include integrity, resourcefulness, and diligence.
