“rad women worldwide” book review


“rad women worldwide” written by kate schatz and illustrated by miriam klein stahl

4 stars

this beautiful book is filled with inspirational stories. there was not one that i wasn’t completely fascinated by. most of them moved me to tears. tears of sadness for the struggles, adversity, and heartbreak that they endured, but also tears of solidarity for the amazing ways they overcame all of it. the women in these pages are strong and independent. they have fought for our rights to be treated as equal. some of the tales go as far back as ancient egypt. some of the women were poor mothers and some were princesses.

i wanted to learn more about each woman i read about. this book serves as a great primer, a jumping off point to learn more. it’s an abridged history lesson about feminism. i can’t wait to learn more about these women and all the other rad women out there who have made and are making a difference. these stories made me proud to be a woman and a feminist, but also made me proud to be a human.


i received a copy of ” rad women worldwide” from blogging for books in an exchange for this honest review.
