"I DON’T THINK OF MYSELF as a crusader, just a hard-working old dray horse. I would think crusaders are much more sure of their positions. Unfortunately, if you’ve learned to look at both sides of things, life gets more complicated."
– Justine Wise Polier, from 'Particular Passions: Talks with Women Who Shaped Our Times'. PARTICULAR PASSIONS recounts the rich oral histories of pioneering women of the twentieth century from the arts and sciences, athletics and law, mathematics and politics.
We share their journeys as they pursue successful paths with intelligence and determination, changing the world for the millions of women and men who were inspired by them.
These stories will captivate, educate, and inspire you.
