Sam Maggs has done it again, Fangirls and Fanboys. She absolutely killed with Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy, and Wonder Women hits an even deeper tone.
Wonder Women isn’t a story, but it’s a well researched “who’s who” of women throughout history. There is focus on several areas and 25 of the women who really excelled in them. There are women that we learn a little bit about in school, but not nearly enough, and there are many women who spent their time fighting for visibility in their field (and until now, were denied it).
Somehow, Maggs summarizes the lives and careers of 25 women in this relatively short book. It’s just enough to let us know how important each of them really was, with reminders that we can also do research to learn about these powerhouses.
Being released from Quirk books on October 18th, Wonder Women should be a gift to everyone you know; teachers, kids, adults, everyone. It’s a magical read about real women, and it provides information that everyone (male and female) would really benefit from learning.
