Product Details


In Williams’ classic comic-strip style, the lives of women scientists, pioneers, athletes, and artists are explored and celebrated…Helping to diversify the gallery are such figures as Frida Kahlo, Wangari Maathai, and Mae Jemison. Williams acknowledges the difficult nature of choosing a select list; she includes brief information about 59 others in the back along with a challenge to readers to find more heroic women who have inspired them. This animated volume will surely rouse future change-makers.
—Kirkus Reviews

Williams has mastered the technique of providing plenty of information in nugget-size chunks and adds insights through her amusing cartoon illustrations, laid out in comics-style panels complete with dialogue that enlivens the learning. Never one to waste space, Williams uses the margins for extra factoids, and the back matter, too, is illustrated and contains information on even more women. The small but bright cartoons will attract new readers, while her many fans will be pleased, once more, to travel through history with her.
