The New York Times-bestselling book for kids—and their parents, teachers, and cool grown-up friends—documenting America’s famous and unsung heroines

Like all A-Z books, this one illustrates the alphabet—but instead of “apple,” A is for Angela—as in Angela Davis, the iconic political activist. B is for Billie Jean King, who shattered the glass ceiling of sports; C is for Carol Burnett, who defied assumptions about women in comedy; D is for Dolores Huerta, who organized farmworkers; and E is for Ella Baker, who mentored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and helped shape the Civil Rights movement.

The Book

Rad American Women A-Z is now available from City Lights Publishers.

“This is not a book. This is a guest list for a party of my heroes. Thank you for inviting us.”
—Lemony Snicket, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events books

“I feel honored to be included in this book. Women need to take radical steps to become feminists, and to be strong to fight for their rights and those of others facing oppression and discrimination. The world needs rad women to create a just society.”
—Dolores Huerta, Labor Leader, Civil Rights Activist
