[Book Review] 365 Days of Gutsy Women by Rosemary Roenfanz

By Rosemary Roenfanz

The history books are largely silent on the contributions of women. Generations of them who have made incredible contributions while receiving little to no recognition. That is until now.

Roenfanz has created a well-researched collection of mini biographies, celebrating the contributions and accomplishments of women throughout history. Many of them largely ignored or forgotten until this volume. The book is beautifully presented and well organized. The cover art is very visually appealing. It really captured my attention.

The contents are equally captivating. One could easily race through it but it’s a wonderful volume to add to daily reflections, learning about one new woman per day. Roenfanz sparks the imagination, opening the door to wider study of the women she’s highlighted. I’m intrigued by many of these women and look forward to exploring many of them in greater depth.

I would like to thank the author for a free copy of her book in exchange for my honest review.
