Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The stories, expertly read by a cast of fantastic performers, are inspiring, moving, and empowering. Each biography is about two minutes long and introduces a rebel woman from ancient history to modern times. Some are household names (Jane Austen); others will be new to listeners (astronomer Wang Zhenyi). The biographies are arranged alphabetically and span the globe. The women profiled excelled at politics, sports, science, the arts, and more. The lively, engaging performances from narrators Mozhan Marnò, Ashley Judd, Esperanza Spalding, and others propel you to listen to the next profile and then the next. Girls can become whatever they want, and here are 200 true-life stories to prove it. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
