    Or that the first computer programmer was a woman born in 1816?

    These amazing little leaders have changed the world, all because they were talented, clever, and above all, determined.

    In the follow up to her beloved debut Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History, Vashti Harrison introduces little readers to even more trailblazing women, from writers to inventors, artists to scientists.

    Discover inspirational heroines like:

    Zaha Hadid
