A total "Girl Power!" book

REVIEW: Rad Women Worldwide by author Kate Schatz and illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl

Women, be empowered!
That is the feeling behind the new book Rad Women Worldwide.

By highlighting 40 extraordinary women throughout history—some in which you may have heard, but many probably not—this book seeks to rouse and provoke inspiration that women can be world changers.

Take for example, Qiu Jin, the Chinese "Joan of Arc” who is considered a national heroine in China and fought for freedom and abolishment of the practice of foot binding; or Hatshepsut, the first and only female king of Egypt; or Bastardilla, a female Colombian who is one of the best street artists in the world.
Rad Women Worldwide, authored by Kate Schatz and illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl, is a beautiful hardback book that takes readers on a journey across the world and through time. Each female figure receives her own 1-page biography summary and hip illustration.

As a female, I found this book uplifting, empowering, and inspiring. It is a great book for any woman who needs a pick-me-up or just a reminder of how fearless, powerful, and daring women can be despite what others in the world might say.
