Celebrating some of history's most remarkable women, this book pairs Julia Pierpont's capsule biographies with Manjit Thapp's stylish portraits. Here are some of our favorite "matron saints" in their roles as leaders (Eleanor Roosevelt, Malala Yousafzai, Wilma Mankiller), artists (Frida Kahlo, Nina Simone, Toni Morrison), scientists (Marie Curie, Sally Ride, Rachel Carson), and trailblazers (Billie Jean King, Margaret Sanger, Sandra Day O'Connor).
"Pierpont's pithy write-ups are accompanied by Thapp's funky, wonderfully expressive color illustrations, making for an engaging picture-book experience for adults.... Bold and sassy ... required reading for any seeking to broaden their historical knowledge."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
