Lots of information given in a simple interesting way. I liked the illustrations because they made the women appear nice and friendly and approachable.

I bought this book for my daughter so she would be inspired and know that women can do great things.

This book was not boring and kept her interest.

We bought this book so that we could read about girls who changed the world during Women's history month. We read a chapter each night at dinner to our two daughters and so far the whole family is enjoying it. Great book for helping girls realize what they can do!

I love this book! I got it just out of curiosity, it was in my suggested books (I don't really know why but it intrigued me), so I got it. I am now planning on buying copies for all my nieces. I figured it would have queens and maybe Joan of Arc or something, like most 'famous women' books I've seen, however it has loads of women and girls through history that did some amazing things. Like freeing their countries from invaders or creating medications and all kinds of cool stuff. I have really enjoyed reading about all of them and I know my nieces will too. I recommend this to anyone who wants their daughters to know they can be anything they want and have them look up to something other than a Disney princess (nothing against Disney, those stories just aren't realistic or motivating to my opinion).

I absolutely LOVED this book and my ten and thirteen year old daughters do too. I really appreciated that there is a wide selection of ladies represented from all over the world, including many cultures that are often overlooked. For examples, there are women represented as warrior queens, scholars, poets, physicists, artists, musicians, fossil hunters, nurses, abolitionists, suffragettes, ballerina, fashion designers, agriculturalists, politicians, missionaries, writers, journalists, activists, architects, etc... It is strong mix of creative arts , scientific, anthropological and other fields.

There are some women included that frequently are topics of biographies, such as Helen Keller, Joan of Ar, and Harriet Tubman. There are many that are many much more obscure, but equally fascinating topics: The Night Witches, Phillis Wheatley, Bessie Smith, and Sarah Bernhardt, for example. There are also recent/current ladies included in the volume such as: Natalie Portman, S.E. Hinton & Temple Grandin.

I highly recommend.

I bought this for my daughter to spark her interest in what women of the world have done. I read it and the examples were ok but really not very interesting. My daughter had trouble making a connection to women selected.
