Modern Women is a celebration of some of the influential and inspiring women who have changed the world through their lives, work and actions. From suffragettes to scientists, activists to artists, politicians to pilots and writers to riot grrrls, the women included have all paved the way for gender equality in their own indomitable way. Their extraordinary lives also enable bigger stories to be told; the suffrage movement, the civil rights struggle, advances in science and technology, the push for artistic freedom, and the importance of equality in all sections of society.
