Rad Women Worldwide is coming September 27th on Ten Speed Press.
Like Rad American Women A-Z, it offers short bios of amazing women that are accompanied by Miriam Klein Stahl’s bold papercut illustrations. But this time, we’ve gone global!
Rad Women Worldwide tells 40 stories of women all over the world who have persevered and fought for equality—from well-known leaders like Malala and Wangari Maathai to lesser-known heroes like Chinese feminist Qiu Jin, Japanese mountain climber Junko Tabei, and Nazi resistor Sophie Scholl.
From ancient heroes like the Sumerian poet Enheduanna all the way up to contemporary figures like Colombian grafitti artist Bastardilla, the book spans centuries and continents to remind readers of the breadth and depth of women’s lives and achievements.
