Good night stories for rebel girls

On November 15, 2016

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.
