Iron Butterflies weaves together the stories of over fifty successful women from all walks of life and throughout the world. Author Birute Regine spent several years in eight countries, interviewing dynamic female role models: a congresswoman, a governor, a former prime minister, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, a winemaker, CEOs, artists, doctors, nurses, and many others. Forging their leadership from an amalgam of masculine and feminine skills, all these "Iron Butterflies" have transformed themselves, and in doing so they are contributing to a larger social transformation.
