Description


Throughout history, Scottish women have broken the rules with attitude. Williamina Fleming reached for the stars and took Harvard by storm. Mary Somerville challenged prejudice to claim the title "scientist" for women. Effie Gray knew the power of language to name and shame bullies and belittlers. Agnes Randolph stood up to a siege and owned every minute of it like a boss. Inspirational and fierce in every sense, these sisters will fire you up to face your own modern-day dilemmas with serious style.
