In a nutshell: In 1976, Ulrich, now a Harvard University history professor, inadvertently created a slogan that is the title of her new book. Through the examination of important and interesting women she has studied in history, Ulrich outlines what it takes for a woman to make history, and she tells with wit and polish the profound stories of several extraordinary, innovative women.
