True stories of eight women heads of state, writers, activists, poets, and scholars defied social biases with a dauntless commitment to God’s Word during the Reformation.

The Reformation was led by men like Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli, who revolutionized their world and ours. But there were also many remarkable women who defied social biases and traditions with a dauntless commitment to God’s Word.

These are the true stories of eight of these women: follow Katharina von Bora as she escapes from a convent to start a revolutionary new life; flee Paris with Charlotte Duplessis de Mornay, who wrote an eyewitness account of the gruesome St Bartholomew’s Day massacre; and learn about the new faith with Queen Katherine Parr, the only one of Henry VIII’s wives to survive him.

These women were heads of state, writers, activists, poets, and scholars, but they were also very human, with their own loves, fears, heartbreaks, and temptations. When we are called to stand for our faith, we can be inspired by their legacy.


"For all who see themselves as children of the Reformation, it is vital to learn about the women who helped lead this movement. As I read these action-packed stories, these Protestant women emerged with deep historical detail as fully human, with emotions and flaws just like me. What an inspiration!"

Dr. Lisa Clark Diller, Professor of History, Southern Adventist University
