Summary
Get inspired by the powerful sheroes in this feminist collection of short biographies. "This book is an antidote to the erasure of women from our history." —Vicki León, author of Uppity Women of Ancient Times #1 Bestseller in Teen & Young Adult Social Activist Biographies and Self-Esteem & Self-Reliance Women hold up half the sky and, most days, do even more of the heavy lifting including childbearing and child-rearing. All after a long day at the office. Women have always been strong, true sheroes, oftentimes unacknowledged. As we shake off the last traces of a major patriarchal hangover, women are coming into their own. In the 21st century, all women can fully embrace their fiery fempower and celebrate their no-holds-barred individuality. It is time to acknowledge the successful women of the world. From the foremothers who blazed trails and broke barriers, to today's women warriors from sports, science, cyberspace, city hall, the lecture hall, and the silver screen, The Book of Awesome Women paints 200 portraits of powerful and inspiring role models for women and girls poised to become super women of the future. In The Book of Awesome Women you will meet: Dian Fossey Martina Navratilova Sojourner Truth Indira Ghandi Aretha Franklin Margaret Mead Coretta Scott King Georgia O'Keeffe Jackie Joyner-Kersee Joan Baez Eleanor Roosevelt Coco Chanel Anita Hill Nobel Peace Prize winners, Malala Yousafzai and Wangari Maathai And many more "Women have been left out of history for far too long. There is much to be learned from these women who paved the way for all of us through courage, daring and smarts." —Ntozake Shange, author of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf
