Gr 5–8—Equal parts educational and motivational, this poignant series elevates women from all over the world and from a variety of historical periods. Twenty-five figures from different industries are spotlighted in each volume, with a variety of social, cultural, racial, and ethnic identities represented in each. Women Who Fought Back explores individuals such as Wangari Maathai and Gloria Steinem, who started movements and spoke up in the face of great odds. This series is distinguished for its rich, nuanced content—facts, inspirational quotes, and high-quality imagery. The format is successful, too, with columns and adequate spacing between text and visual elements.
VERDICT An indispensable guide to the lives of great women. Purchase to enlighten middle school readers who hope to change the world.
