Have you ever heated up a frozen pizza or nibbled from a bag of potato chips?

Played a board game or blues guitar?

Loaded cans in a paper bag or dishes in a dishwasher?

All of these are possible because a woman in history had the spirit and grit to take an idea and run with it.

Spirit and Grit! tells the fascinating stories of more than one hundred remarkable women in history who were the earliest "entrepreneurs," willing to take a risk to establish a business of their own. 

Next time you open a refrigerator, choose a lipstick, try Creole cooking, clean a toilet, play in a marching band, enter a house with solar heat, or consider a career on Wall Street, think of the women who struck out on their own and blazed a trail to make our lives easier, efficient, and fun!
