Description


Create, prevail, change the world . . . like a GIRL! This celebration of international girl power honors a multitude of women who made a difference.

“As an introduction to women's power and possibilities, this choice rises above the rest.” —Kirkus

Once upon a time, “like a girl” was considered an insult. Not anymore! In art, aviation, politics, sports, every walk of life, girls are demonstrating their creativity, perseverance, and strength. From civil rights activist Rosa Parks, who stood up for her beliefs by staying seated, to astronaut Sally Ride, who soared to the skies, the 24 women profiled here took risks, acted up, broke barriers, and transformed the world. With its simple yet powerful text, this book will inspire young women everywhere.
