Marne Ventura's 12 Women in Education takes a look at the 12 women who revolutionized education and left a lasting impression on the field of learning. Anne Sullivan had an eye disease at the age of five which nearly left her blind and it was she who tutored Helen Keller. They both traveled together and showed the world that people without sight, hearing, and speech can be educated and make their contributions to the world. Sainte-Marie founded the Cradleboard Teaching Project that helped people learn about American Native culture and history. Carla Hayden was the first woman librarian of Congress and she was the first African American woman picked for the job. Let's get acquainted with the rest of the women who made lasting contributions in the field of education.

Marne Ventura's 12 Women in Education is informative and educational and every chapter will pull in readers with its fascinating facts, wonderful pictures, and biographical details about these women in education. This entire series is worth having in one's personal collection as it gives good information about the people who played important roles in various fields in an engaging way. Schools and public libraries will also find this book and the entire series interesting for children and it can also be used for reference. The Out of the Shadows section at the end of the book gives information about a few other women in education who were never really appreciated for their contribution to the world of education.
