Many of the early action goddesses are covered such as Ivy Ling Po, Lilly Lee, Angela Mao, Judy Lee, Polly Kwan and Hui Ying Hung. Not only are their careers discussed, but information about their personal lives is also included at times.

Much space is obviously devoted to the great femme fatales of the 1980’s – Moon Lee, Yukari Oshima, Cynthia Khan, Michiko Nishawaki,The Heroic Trio – Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung & Anita Mui. And just about any other of the action starlets are in here somewhere.
