Rad Women Worldwide: Artists and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History
What do mountain climbers, poets, politicians, artists, doctors, astronauts, explorers, sports stars, singers, teachers, and more all have in common? In this extraordinary, inspirational book, these are all women who have changed the world through their perseverance and dedication to particular missions or causes. The book contains forty stories of women, young and old, throughout history, representing countries all around the world, who have found ways to make things better for people everywhere. The research is impeccable, and the writing is lively and crisp. Most readers will recognize a handful of the names of women represented here; the rest of the women have quietly made their important marks on history. And these stories will inspire young people, particularly girls and young women, to believe in their ability to choose paths that may not be easy, but that will change things in profound ways. Author Kate Schatz has chosen great stories to share here, and illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl used strongly stylized black-and-white drawings to show the power of these women. This will be a great addition to every school library and middle-grade classrooms everywhere.
