Rad Women Worldwide tells fresh, engaging, and inspiring tales of perseverance and radical success by pairing well researched and riveting biographies with powerful and expressive cut-paper portraits. From 430 BCE to 2016, spanning 31 countries around the world, the book features an array of diverse figures, including Hatshepsut (the great female king who ruled Egypt peacefully for two decades) and Malala Yousafzi (the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize) to Poly Styrene (legendary teenage punk and lead singer of X-Ray Spex) and Liv Arnesen and Ann Bancroft (polar explorers and the first women to cross Antarctica). This progressive and visually arresting book is a compelling addition to women's history and belongs on the shelf of every school, library, and home.
Together, these stories show the immense range of what women have done and can do. May we all have the courage to be rad!

I LOVE this book. Not only is it illustrated beautiful but the stories are moving and heartwarming. They are powerful! This is a story we need in the todays's world. It's positive views of women from all around the world from different countries, times it shows that women have and are able to follow their dreams and chance the world. (I was given this book by Blogging for Books for a honest review.)
