Life 100 People Who Changed The World By the Editors of Life Magazine
This 126 page book provides wonderful profiles of 100 people who have made contributions to world history over the past 4,000 years. Many similar books have ignored or minimized the contributions of women, but the editors of Life found 23 women to include. While this is not equity it is closer than most. Each profile is one to two pages and is illustrated with some fantastic artwork.
