New in the Little People, Big Dreams series, meet an inspiring women's rights activist who changed the world for future generations of women.
As a child, Emmeline Pankhurst was shocked at the inequality of men and women that she saw all around her.
When she grew up, she never stopped fighting for women to get the vote, inspiring other women to demonstrate, go on hunger strike and protest for the cause.
With stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, this empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful women of the world. From designers and artists to scientists, all of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. These books make the lives of these role models accessible for children, providing a powerful message to inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world!
