Book talk – part biography, part business how-to, fully empowering success stories

Girls Who Run the World is a woman-to-woman playbook that spotlights bold businesswomen who have achieved success and done it in their own way.”
—Former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright.

Girls Who Run the World is a blueprint for badassery and bravery. Think How I Built This for teen girls and young women, featuring the entrepreneurs behind Rent the Runway, Stitch Fix, Pop Sugar, Glossier, Minted, Soul Cycle, Mitu. These are the sometimes messy, always bold, inside stories of the entrepreneurs fighting bias in hiring (Blendoor), sequencing genes to empower with personal health information (23andMe) and saving premie babies (Embrace).
