This large format picture book is a wonderful celebration of women. Sixteen individual women are included in the first sixteen double page spread pages. Presented in graphic novel style, biographic information and accomplishments are included. Some of the women included are Malala Yousafzai, Anne Frank, Cleopatra, Boudicca, Mae C. Jemison and Australia’s very own Cathy Freeman. There are of course many more as creator Marcia Williams does not stop there. Following these pages are more women, in the categories of Leaders and World-changers, Sportswomen and Creatives, and Scientists, Pioneers and Adventurers. All women are listed in the index in the back.
This book certainly lives up to its name. All women are an inspiration to readers. This is the perfect start for researching women of influence throughout history and should be shared with all children, and adults also!
Many thanks to Walker Books Australia for supplying this book for review.
