The perfect introduction for learning about women throughout history who dared to do the extraordinary! Inspire our new generation of women to explore, discover, persist, succeed, and fight like a girl! A great gift for girls 9-12!
Women have been doing amazing, daring, and dangerous things for years, but they're rarely mentioned in our history books as adventurers, daredevils, or rebels. This new compilation of brief biographies features women throughout history who have risked their lives for adventure-many of whom you may not know, but all of whom you'll WANT to know, such as:
Annie Edson Taylor, the first person who dared to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel
Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman who dared to fly in space
Helen Gibson, the first woman who dared to be a professional stunt person
And many more! If you and your child enjoyed She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton, Little Dreamers, Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls or Girls Think of Everything, you will love reading Women Who Dared.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A populous gallery of courageous, independent women" - Kirkus Reviews
"Here are the brief biographies of 52 women who have one thing in common-they did not allow fear or social pressure to stop them from achieving their individual accomplishments. Every one-page biography is accompanied by a stellar illustration that captures the spirit and attitude of each woman and provides visual reference to their times and their professions. Whether read as a cohesive body of stories or as individual brief biographies, this book is a worthwhile study in tenacity." - Booklist
"Young readers ages eight and up will find wonderful role models [in Women Who Dared], and the compelling stories in these pages may give them the impetus to try new things and take the steps they need to create their own daring moments in life. The writing is snappy and the illustrations fun. This is a winner." - Manhattan Book Review
