Once in a lifetime a book comes along that is truly life changing, may sound cliché, but it’s true. Rad Women Worldwide is such a book. We as women, now more than ever, need to understand our ability to do great things. Women have shaped this world and have made countless contributions that are never acknowledged or even taught in school. As a mother to four, one being a girl, I feel that it is my duty to raise them to believe that they can change the world for the better, and they can. Unfortunately , the world we live in makes young girls feel as if they are “less than” to their male counterparts . They are taught about all the great MEN that have shaped history but rarely about the many women that have done the same. Unless, they go on to college and take a women’s study course they will sadly never be taught what women have done for this world.
Rad Women Worldwide
Was written by Kate Schatz and illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl. The book covers Rad women from across the globe and throughout history. Women who were among the very first authors, Enheduanna who lived 4,300 years ago. She was a Princess, a poet and a teacher. Malala Yousafzai who was shot in the head for demanding the right to go to school for her and all girls in Pakistan. She went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize at age 17. Venus and Serena Williams sisters who dominate on the tennis court. Both winning numerous gold medals in the Olympics (four each!). Not only are they incredible tennis players but also fashion designers, actors, entrepreneurs AND activists.
I could go on for hours on all of the Rad women in this book but I will leave you with my own bit of wisdom. We, as women, need to make sure we instill self worth into the next generation of women. Our daughters have an uphill battle ahead of them, still, and it is heartbreaking. This book needs to be read and shared with every woman, daughter, mom, niece and BFF. It will, in my opinion, give them hope that anything is possible. As always thank you for stopping by .
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
