Rad Women Worldwide: Artist and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History by Kate Schatz
This book is part of a new growing set of resources coming out about tons of awesome things women have done throughout history to make change or impact society in a powerful way. From Mexico to Japan (and everywhere in between), there have been women standing up for the rights of the people in their communities, pioneering careers, kicking butt in sports, running countries, and sooo much more! This book is a tiny glimpse into these fantastic feats against all odds.
Miriam Klein Stahl beautifully illustrated this book with stylized black and white pictures of these women and girls. Color pops and relevant images bring to life the power within these women and their actions. Each story, written by Kate Schatz, give a summary of each helping you to understand some of their contribution to the world. She wonderfully characterizes the ladies and I found myself wanting to dig in and learn much more about each. Many of the vignettes are accompanied by a compelling and often inspirational quote.
At the end, there are pages and pages of more women to learn about and where they’re from. I will certainly be checking these off over time.
You will definitely see more books like this on BeautifulBook.Club. As I get though them I’ll post them here. If you want to be notified about these kind of posts in the future please join our newsletter!
