Sisters and Rivals
Ten Women Who Changed the World With Their Talent
Iconic and visionary women in the 19th century. Striving to outdo each other, these trailblazers challenged each other and society, changing the course of history.
Striving to outdo each other, extraordinary women have made history through feuding. While waging war upon each other, these ten women reached the pinnacle of their careers, establishing themselves in an era of limited opportunities: Coco Chanel & Elsa Schiaparelli; Sarah Bernhardt & the Eleonora Duse; American gossip columnists Hedda Hopper & Louella Parsons; Joan Fontaine & her sister Olivia De Havilland. A fascinating new approach to women in history. Ten female pioneers, loosely connected in time and place, demonstrate how the flames of rivalry left their mark of genius.
