Femme Magnifique: 50 Magnificent Women Who Changed the World edited by Shelly Bond
Publication Date: September 25, 2018
Are you ready to meet some awesome women who have done unbelievable things for our world, our species, nature, animals, food, space, music and more? In this brilliant anthology, editor Shelly Bond brings readers the stories of 50 magnificent women who affected change no matter the challenges or barriers they encountered along the way. Each individually illustrated story is three pages long, which doesn’t seem like enough to get the essence of each woman, but the vignettes are a perfect introduction to women who live their lives on their own terms, and encourages readers to seek out even more information on the profiles which affect them the most. From Kate Bush and Michelle Obama, to Aida Page and the Broad City gals, there are a variety of talents, interests, stories and diversity to engage any reader in the wonderful works women have done, many with little or no recognition at all (looking at you Rosalind Franklin).
