MEDIA REVIEWS
Throughout history, there have been brave women prepared to stand up to society no matter what the cost... and on the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in the UK, it's the ideal time to put these pioneers in the spotlight. This fascinating new book - written by author and journalist Sandra Lawrence and beautifully illustrated throughout by Nathan Collins - introduces a new generation to the incredible stories of 50 trailblazing women who dared to be different. In her introduction, Lawrence says, 'Throughout history, as men have achieved extraordinary feats, women have been there too, often doing the same things, while dressed in long skirts, corsets and high heels. That is of course, if they've even been allowed to do it in the first place.' And these awe-inspiring stories featuring a diverse selection of women from the past and the present prove beyond doubt that against the odds, there are inspirational individuals who have managed to push the boundaries of human excellence and endeavour. Standing out for their achievements in sport, science, the arts, politics, literature, business and history, these women have made huge contributions to society as it is today and include the likes of Nora Ephron, Queen Elizabeth I, Mary Wollstonecraft, Emmeline Pankhurst, Mary Anning and Malala Yousafzai. The Anthology of Amazing Women is a journey of discovery for anyone wanting to learn about the incredible women who have changed our lives. And as Lawrence points out, these women are 'only the tip of an incredible iceberg' with thousands of others more than worthy of being celebrated for their achievements. She hopes that after reading about her chosen selection, girls will be inspired to come up with a list of their own or, even better, become an amazing woman in their own right! * Lancashire Evening Post *
The anniversary of women's suffrage has brought a plethora of books about famous women of the past and this, with its one page biographies accompanied by an outstanding full page portrait of each woman, is a worthy addition. This collection tells the awe-inspiring stories of 50 women who have pushed the boundaries of human excellence and endeavour. Each features a short and well-written biography. There are many well-known women including Elizabeth I and Malala Yousafzai, but it is great to see so many less well-known women featured and brought to our attention, like Chien-Shiung Wu and Aud the Deep-Minded. Children will be fascinated reading about these women's achievements in science, sports, the arts, politics, and history, and it is sure to inspire a new generation of extraordinary girls!Nathan Collins' illustrations perfectly portray the characters and there are plenty of little details to spot. * Parents in Touch *
Inspiring stories, beautifully illustrated, everyone should read. * Creative Steps *
