The female lead

Over fifty inspirational women, from many walks of life. All have changed the world in a variety of fields. Among them are politicians and artists, journalists and teachers, engineers and campaigners, fire fighters and film stars. Together they form an arresting gallery of portraits, each one illustrated with original photography by the French Brigitte Lacombe. Lacombe - who is known for her revelatory and influental portraiture - could very well be included in the book on her own right.

Some have led their professions; some have broken new ground for women; some have inspired changes through relentless endeavour. All were chosen for their ambitions and achievements and all tell their stories in their own words.

Includes portraits from Meryl Streep, Christine Lagarde, Tina Brown, Lena Dunham, Jo Malone, Laura Bates, Yeonmi Park, Lucy Bronze, Julie Bentley and Michaela DePrince, amongst many others.
