Synopsis

Fight Like a Girl by Laura Barcella

And today's teens are encountering these issues from their own unique perspective but what's often missing from this discussion is an understanding of how we've gotten to this place. Fight Like a Girl introduces readers to the history of feminist activism in the U.S. through profiles of fifty incredible women, including Hillary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Roxane Gay, and more.

Reviews

The feminist history book everyone should read. . . Way cooler than any history book. . . Meant to be fun enough for both teens and adults to get into, the book educates readers not only about women's rights, but also race and transgender rights, all of which are intertwined. -Metro US Written for a young-adult audience, but it's worth a read at any age. . . The real treasure of this book is the bibliography. . . [It] will inspire further feminist exploration for years to come. -Bust Magazine [A] snappy portrayal of feminist history. . . A worthy introduction of the feminist teen and an excellent choice for Women's History Month. --School Library Journal The inclusion of trans women, celebrity performers, and women who assert a lack of comfort with feminism add to the book's inclusivity and make it even more likely to spur stimulating discussions. --Booklist [C]ombines profiles of influential women, from Mary Wollstonecraft to Beyonce, with portraits, sidebars and memorable quotes. -Tampa Bay Times Although Fight Like a Girl: 50 Feminists Who Changed the World is written especially for young adults and teenagers, adults will also find this biographical-snapshot compilation of women who dared to make the world a better place enlightening. . . Highly recommended. --Children's Bookwatch [C]oncise but eloquent. . . [A] wide-ranging tribute to trailblazing women. --Publishers Weekly
