Not all heroes wear spandex and capes. Sometimes, they come from the most unlikely of places. Heroes of Necessity collects four such tales of women who become the heroes that the situation calls for.
When a weather app starts talking to her, Molly realizes that her programming abilities can be used for far more good than she anticipated.
