Do you remember the story that first empowered you as a young girl?
We were thrilled to see that this book does just that, recommending that girls, instead of marrying a prince, set their sights on walking on Mars.
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls includes 100 tales of extraordinary women, from the past to contemporary women of today. Elizabeth I, the Bronte sisters, Jane Goodall and Serena Williams all feature in the book. The women selected are all leaders in their numerous fields and include astronauts, chefs, judges and engineers.
The book celebrates curiosity, passion and determination, empowering young girls with the stories of many unconventional women who continue to change the world in every field imaginable. You can pre-order the book in Australia here or buy it here.
Thanks to our friends at Random House we have five copies of our Book of the Week, Peaches For Monsieur Le Cure by Joanne Harris, to give away.On August 8, 2012
