calkhoven-women-who-changed-the-worldThe recent emphasis on the importance of women has resulted in a large variety of books with brief biographical information and drawings. This paperback lists several of these women. Calkhoven has adopted a traditional list with no unusual additions to make this book stand out, and many of Castelao’s drawings are not particularly attractive. This book could be used in libraries with extremely large collections.
