Carrie Croft, Readings Hawthorn

This [book] . . . must be in every library's collection if we are to continue to reveal and tell the stories of our women.

Barbara Braxton, The Bottom Shelf Blog

A perfect gift for the daughter – or son – in your life, this book is full of clever women in short tales with beautiful illustrations . . . In an easy-to-read format targeted at children and young adults, but enjoyable for all, the pages burst forth with tales of wellknown and not-so-well-known women, past and present, in fields such as science, the arts, politics, sport and journalism.

Frances Whiting, Hobart Mercury

A terrific addition to the home or school library this collection of inspirational Australian women reflects how far we have come in the fight for gender equality and goes some way in influencing future generations, both male and female, to continue the fight but also live life to the fullest.
