HERSTORY 50 Women and Girls Who Shook Up the World

by | Read by Ann M. Richardson

Children Ages 8+ • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Ann Richardson gives a pleasantly informative narration of these short biographies of 50 women who changed the world even when others (sometimes brutally) tried to stop them. Her confident, upbeat tone makes listeners care about these "herstorical" women across the globe, including artists, writers, leaders, health-care workers, healers, scientific innovators, activists, and visionaries. Underscoring the message that girls can do anything they choose, the diverse subjects include Joan of Arc, Empress Wu Zetian of China, scientist Dian Fossey, and artists Frida Kahlo, Coco Chanel, and Billie Holiday. Activists include Malala Yousafzai, British-Indian secret agent Noor Inayat Khan, and Mayan human rights activist Rigoberta Menchú. Each chapter depicts a different woman, so listeners can easily skip some biographies, depending on their interest. S.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2018]
