Rebel Girls Lead: 25 Tales of Powerful Women


Rebel Girls Lead is a collection of short biographies for 25 women in leadership roles. Due out 26th Jan 2021 from Rebel Girls, it's 64 pages and will be available in paperback and ebook formats.

This is a well illustrated collection of 25 short biographies of women from a broad number of backgrounds and areas of expertise including supreme court judges, political activists, athletes, artists, resistance fighters, and more. They are drawn from a number of eras, from Cleopatra to Vice-President elect Kamala Harris and from a wide variety of world cultures. The illustrations are simple but recognizable. There are a number of different illustrators contributing to this collection. 

Representation is so important. It's nice to read about these inspiring women (past and present). Worth noting that some of the content contained here was previously published in Good Night Stories
for Rebel Girls, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2, and Good Night Stories for Rebel
Girls: 100 Immigrant Women Who Changed the World

Worthwhile. This would make a superlative selection for home use, library acquisition, gifting, or school/classroom library. 

Five stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
