The first book on my list takes an interesting approach because it is in graphic novel form. The book Brazen by Penelope Bagieu tells the stories of dozens of women through the use of pictures. These are the stories of strong women who changed their worlds. This book is full of stories of interesting women. An example is the story of Annette Kellerman who suffered from Polio as a child and was encouraged to learn to swim. Her accomplishments with swimming changed the design of swimming suits and liberated women and society's ideas of public dress, athletics, and the movies.
The second book is A World of Her Own by Michael Elsohn Ross. This book follows the lives of Women Explorers and Adventurers. We often hear about the explorations of Lewis and Clark and other famous men, but this book highlights 24 women who are famous for their own adventures. From climbing mountains to exploring the world's waters this will give you lots of interesting stories.
Finally, Rad Girls Can by Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl. These are stories of girls born in the 80's and 90's and 2000's. These are stories of young girls standing up for what they believe in and making a change and affecting the world that they live in. These are stories that are meant to inspire and encourage other young women to be brave and accomplish great things.
