Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I am a big fan of feminism. Say what you will about the movement but I still think that it is still needed. I requested this book because I wanted to learn more about some amazing woman from the past and more recent past.

Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for sending me a copy of this book to review. Just a quick disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any. All thoughts are my own.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I liked this book. I think that it wasn't as diverse as I had hoped it would be, in more ways than one. However, beyond that I actually really enjoyed the content in this book. There was an amazing and inspiring woman every two pages. The illustrations of the woman are really cool. I was obsessed with some of them. I think that this book is important for everyone. I think that it can serve as a reminder that we can do anything regardless of our position in life. All we need is a little drive. Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for sending me a copy of this book to review!

Yours in Reading,

Melleny
