Inspiring ‘Pioneers of the Possible’
There has long been a tradition of strong and inspiring women; women whose spirit, willpower and determination changed the course of history. What better way to celebrate some of the most spectacular females than with Assouline’s book, Pioneers of the Possible?
Written by Angella Nazarian, author of 2009’s Life as a Visitor, Pioneers of the Possible is heartwarming and beautiful book celebrating the lives and victories of 20 of the world’s most inspirational females from the past century through to today. The list includes everyone from singers to artists, social activists to business tycoons.
This collection was not only created to educate, but also to illustrate the ladies who had the drive, passion and imagination to go forth with their dreams, hopefully inspiring readers to do so in a similar way. Women should move forward to greater, deeper lives, just as they did.
We don’t want to spoil the book, but some special people you’ll find inside are Martha Graham, Simone de Beauvoir, Frida Kahlo, Zaha Hadid, Ella Fitzgerald, Wangari Maathai, Estée Lauder, Helen Suzman and Jacquelin Novofratz. You may have heard of all of them, you might have only heard of a few. Either way, this book is a gem, uncovering the history and celebrating the life of each of these icons.
“I’ve always believed every woman needs a network of supportive women friends—what I call your fearless tribe,” says Arianna Huffington, ”and Pioneers of the Possible, with its intimate portraits of accomplished women, is like a fearless tribe… between covers. I came away inspired and emboldened by their amazing life stories.”
The book is already out and priced at $45, so get out there and get inspired!
