Already the saying goes that “behind a great man there is always a great woman” and the book that we present today shows that same, giving us to know women who were “extraordinary” by their actions in a time when nothing was done predict.
Gender equality is now a hot topic. Social and wage inequality between men and women is still, in the midst of the twenty-first century, a subject that needs to be debated so that the scenario can finally change.
Throughout the history of Portugal, many women have taken a step forward, putting themselves ahead of their time and making their name perpetuated throughout the centuries.
But do we know the great women who have offered Portuguese society with their courage, ambition and intelligence?
The book ‘Extraordinary Portuguese Women of Courage in front of Your Time’ is already in the bookstores and tells the story of more than three dozen women who have left their mark on the History of Portugal.
The work counts on the illustrations of Elsa Martins and the texts of Maria do Rosário Pedreira and, although it is directed to the public to the youngest, it is also a good reading for the adult fringe of the population.
See the gallery above for some examples of great women given to us in the book.
