A while ago, I posted a series on Facebook of specific women in history. Each post is accompanied by pertinent information about each woman.
People have been thanking me for the series, saying it has been educational, inspiring and exciting.
Readers are enjoying seeing how these women overcame cultural or family opposition, how they did incredible things and contributed to science and other disciplines in a big way.
Often, these women of old had to live with their dreams hidden from sight, concealing their true sex, their ambition or talents, or undergoing tremendous physical pain or exertion.
And they succeeded in their dreams, even when they were run over or ignored by the men in their fields – who often stole their accomplishments right out from under them and attributed the invention or discovery to themselves.
Some of them were completely forgotten within a short time after their deaths. Sometimes even obliterated from history by power-hungry sons or husbands, business partners or employers, or other rivals.
So, I created a series – short, downloadable ebooks, with more pictures and a write-up about each one. This is volume #1. I hope you enjoy reading it and appreciating who each woman in it was, and how cool the things they did were.
If you’d like a FREE downloadable copy of the first volume, containing the first set of amazing women of old, just RIGHT CLICK HERE to get your new ebook.
Please make sure you download it all the way to your computer (opens in a new window). I’d sure appreciate it if you let me know if you like the series enough for more.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT open the pdf in your browser, since it will go away once you close the window.
If you’d like Volume #2, it is HERE.
I’d sure love to know how you liked it! You can either say so in a post on FB (facebook.com/AngelaTreatLyon) or contact me (click on the green button thingie to the left).
