Fight Like a Girl: 50 Feminists Who Changed the World Reviews
Great compilation of amazing women. Takes about 5-10 minutes to read about each one, so you can read a little at a time. Highly recommend for young girls. Best of all is it includes HILLARY!! =)
A great exploration of influential women, present and past. I would love to use excerpts from this book for my middle school class. It's fun and very accessible!
Unique book for our local library!
For a long time I've been looking for a book like this one. What I loved was learning about women I didn't know, who aren't always in the media, who have had a profound impact on society and feminist culture. The structure of the book makes it easy to read and the juicy details that Barcella reveals make the stories of these women's lives easy to remember.
my 10 yr. old granddaughter loves it
Love the content - issues with the "readability" which took away from my reading enjoyment. Why am I unable to change the font type and font size on my kindle? I have horrible vision and being able to increase the font size for ease of reading is very important to me, and I've never had this issue with a book purchased for my kindle (over 600 in my library).
Completely in love with this book. Barcella does an excellent job at shedding light on a lot of feminist warriors that sometimes have been left out the dominant feminist narrative (I'm looking at you, Pauli Murray). The feminist icons explored in this book are so diverse that any girl or woman (no matter her condition) can feel empowered and represented by their stories. Definitely a must read!
Laura Barcella’s call for young people to define their own feminism through example is refreshing. She follows inclusiveness and “big tent” feminism - something some of the more well-known icons of second wave feminism seem to have lost recently. Great read!
