十二位名垂青史的女孩,她们是谁?又做了些什么?

本书介绍了十二位名垂青史的女孩,分别是:叙利亚巴尔米拉的Zenobia、不列颠的海伦娜、东罗马帝国君士坦丁堡的Pulcheria、勃良第的Clotilda、黄河之女Woo、苏格兰的Edith、荷兰的杰奎琳、威尼斯的卡特琳娜、阿维拉的圣女Theresa、都铎王朝的伊丽莎白、瑞典的克里斯蒂娜、弗吉尼亚森林的MA-TA-OKA。

For the "Great King," having killed and stuffed the captive Roman Emperor, now turned his arms against the Roman power in the east and, destroying both Antioch and Emesa, looked with an evil eye toward Palmyra. Zenobia, remembering the omen of the eagle and the lion, repeated her counsel of facing craft with craft, and letters and gifts had been sent to Sapor, asking for peace and friendship.

E.S.布鲁克斯(1846-1902)是美国的作家、编辑家和评论家。他主要以儿童文学为著,其中许多作品设计到历史和爱国的主题。

Elbridge Streeter Brooks (1846–1902) was an American author, editor, and critic. He is chiefly remembered as an author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction for children, much of it on historical or patriotic subjects. His byline for most of his writing was Elbridge S. Brooks.

In these progressive days, when so much energy and discussion are devoted to what is termed equality and the rights of woman, it is well to remember that there have been in the distant past women, and girls even, who by their actions and endeavors proved themselves the equals of the men of their time in valor, shrewdness, and ability.
