Rad American Women A-Z book cover

Rad American Women A-Z, by Kate Schatz and illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl, documents America’s many famous and unsung heroines. In typical fashion of an A-Z book, Rad American Women uses the alphabet to showcase the feats of these many women. But instead of having “A is for Apple,” Schatz writes “A is for Angela Davis – Who never backs down from the fight for justice” and “M is for Maya Lin – Who makes big ideas into beautiful art.” Each page contains the alphabet letter, a beautiful illustration, and a short story about the accomplishments of each woman.

This book is great for anyone who wants to learn about America’s most inspirational women. It is perfect for children, adults, and teachers, who wish to start a discussion on feminism and the power of women in America. Rad American Women also includes a resource guide with other books about “Rad American Women” and websites and organizations that promote equality for all.
