About the Book

Includes bibliographical references (pages 197-223).

Book Synopsis

Nearly every day there's another news story or pop cultural anecdote related to feminism and women's rights. #YesAllWomen, conversations around consent, equal pay, access to contraception, and a host of other issues are foremost topics of conversation in American (and worldwide) media right now. Today's teens are encountering these issues from a different perspective than any generation has had before, but what's often missing from the current discussion is an understanding of how we've gotten to this place. Fight Like a Girl will familiarize readers with the history of feminist activism, in an effort to celebrate those who paved the way and draw attention to those who are working hard to further the cause of women's rights. Profiles of both famous and lesser-known feminists will be featured alongside descriptions of how their actions affected the overall feminist cause, and unique portraits (artist's renderings) of the feminists themselves. This artistic addition will take the book beyond simply an informational text, and make it a treasure of a book.

Review Quotes

"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 "[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
