History vs Women Reviews


"Readers of all ages, across the globe and socioeconomic spectrum, can find an icon to look up to within these pages. Filled with strength, this collection is incredibly inspiring and will instill in teens a take-charge attitude and powerful mind-set." -- School Library Journal, Starred Review

"This collective biography of women who have boldly made their marks on a world that often took great pains to deny them makes a concentrated effort to shine a spotlight on those outside of the white, Western canon...This engaging, crisply designed book attempts to break barriers at every opportunity....A superbly well-rounded addition for collections looking to expand beyond recitations of the familiar." --Booklist, Starred Review
