Product description

Review

"The feminist history book everyone should read. . . Way cooler than any history book. . . Meant to be fun enough for both teens and adults to get into, the book educates readers not only about women s rights, but also race and transgender rights, all of which are intertwined. "Metro US" Written for a young-adult audience, but it s worth a read at any age. . . The real treasure of this book is the bibliography. . . [It] will inspire further feminist exploration for years to come. Bust Magazine [A] snappy portrayal of feminist history. . . A worthy introduction of the feminist teen and an excellent choice for Women s History Month. --"School Library Journal " "The inclusion of trans women, celebrity performers, and women who assert a lack of comfort with feminism add to the book s inclusivity and make it even more likely to spur stimulating discussions."--"Booklist " [C]ombines profiles of influential women, from Mary Wollstonecraft to Beyonce, with portraits, sidebars and memorable quotes. "Tampa Bay Times" "Although Fight Like a Girl: 50 Feminists Who Changed the World is written especially for young adults and teenagers, adults will also find this biographical-snapshot compilation of women who dared to make the world a better place enlightening. . . Highly recommended. --"Children's Bookwatch " [C]oncise but eloquent. . . [A] wide-ranging tribute to trailblazing women. --"Publishers Weekly""
