“Warrior, Queen, Scientist, Activist” chronicles the remarkable stories of women who, at pivotal moments in their lives, chose to confront adversity head-on rather than succumb to the pressures of conformity.

Drawing from his extensive research and teaching experiences, Steenkamp unveils a diverse tapestry of women who defied the odds and reshaped the course of history.

“The overwhelming majority of studies in human society have focused on male protagonists, yet women have played pivotal roles in shaping our world,” explains Steenkamp. “Through this book, I aim to illuminate the often-overlooked contributions of women who exhibited extraordinary courage and determination in the face of formidable challenges.”

From ancient civilizations to modern-day movements, “Warrior, Queen, Scientist, Activist” offers readers a thought-provoking journey through time and space, highlighting the grit and resilience of women who dared to defy expectations. Through their stories, readers are inspired to embrace their own inner strength and persevere in the face of adversity.
