    A collection of tales of women with strong Welsh connections either through birth, marriage, immigration or myth. The women in these tales are inspirational, daring and enlightening showing how women really have had that so called 'girl power' for centuries. These are women we should be intensly proud of both as Welshmen and as women. The tales in this book tell of pride and determination in the face of overwhelming odds, of bravery and pure gutsy-ness, of passion, love and joy. They are an inspiration to women today to battle against that glass ceiling which is can still be felt and to never stand down but to fight for what they believe in and what they truely want.The women included in this volume are:Ceridwen - a mythical woman feared by menBuddug (Boudica) - strong and brave she stood up for her family and her people and took on the Roman empireArianrhod a Blodeuwedd - strong mythical women portrayed in the MabingionNest - refered to as Wales's answer to Helen of TroyGwenllian - brave and determined, she took on the Norman invaders along with her husband and sonsSiwan - was worshipped by her husband despite her mis-deedsGwerfyl Mechain - an accomplished and well known poet, she voiced women's concerns and took great pride in her sexCatrin o Ferain - a descendant of Henry VII she is known as the Mother of WalesMarged Ferch Ifan - a harpist, innkeeper and wrestler (among others) she stood her ground and beat men at their own gameEleaner Butler a Sarah Ponsonby - the Ladies of Llangollen who fled Ireland to live their lives togetherJemima Nicholas - a cobbler in Fishguard who battled the French Army when they landed in 1797 and caught 12 with a pitchforkMary Lewis - a truely wild woman who was caught for theivery and sent to Australia as punishmentAnn Griffiths - a hymnist and farmer's daughter her words and songs portrayed passion and love like nerv before and are still known todayAlabina Wood - a strong willed gypsy who followed her heart and became a Phuri Dai (gypsy leader and advisor)Betsi Cadwaladr - a Crimea nurse and traveller, she travelled the world with her husbands and did more during the Crimea wars than her more famous counterpart, Florence NightingaleMerched Beca - actually a group of male farmers who dressed as women and rioted to protest against unfair and extortionate road tollsElizabeth Amy Dillwyn - a novelist and businesswomen, she wrote under the pen name E.A Dillwyn, became popular and well known then took on her father's failing business and turned it around to profitAnnie Ellis - immigrated to America and became a lodging house keeper in the Wild West where she kept the clientel under strict control, not an easy taskMegan Lloyd George - Anglesey MP for the LIb Dems then Labour she stood up for her beliefs and her country at a time when very few women entered politics
