Book Description 
  
Women of Our Time is a glorious photographic celebration of seventy-five of the most creative, humane, controversial, witty, brave, beautiful, and inspirational women of the twentieth century. These revealing portraits, by an array of distinguished photographers, show women who have reached the summit of achievement in politics, business, art, sport, performance, music, humanitarianism, and science-women such as Katharine Graham, Billie Holiday, Eleanor Roosevelt, Joan Baez, Amelia Earhart, and Helena Rubinstein.  
  
The photographs depict their subjects at pivotal moments in their careers and are accompanied by brief biographies that not only highlight their distinctive contributions and achievements, but also show how they were viewed by their contemporaries. Beautifully designed, this book celebrates the women who have defined the modern age
