In 1966, Barbara Jordan was elected to the Texas State Senate, the bodys first black member in 83 years, and six years later she was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. On December 23, 1986, Jeana Yeager and Dick Rutan became the first people to fly nonstop around the world. These women and 103 others are profiled here. They come from a wide variety of careers--military leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians, journalists, pilots, scientists, and others--but all were leaders in fields dominated by men.

The focus of the profiles is rightly on the womens accomplishments, but also examined are the obstacles they overcame in reaching their leadership positions.
