* "There might be something more exciting than an illustrated alphabet of American heroines both famous and unsung, but I’m not sure what that thing would be. It’s a marvelous, simple idea executed beautifully."—BookRiot
* Like all A-Z books, this one illustrates the alphabet—but instead of "A is for Apple," A is for Angela—as in Angela Davis, the iconic political activist. B is for Billie Jean King, who shattered the glass ceiling of sports and C is for Carol Burnett, who defied assumptions about women in comedy. The list of amazing women goes on, spanning several centuries, multiple professions, and 26 diverse individuals. There are artists and abolitionists, scientists and suffragettes, rock stars and rabble-rousers, and agents of change of all kinds.
* "I feel honored to be included in this book. Women need to take radical steps to become feminists, and to be strong to fight for their rights and those of others facing oppression and discrimination. The world needs rad women to create a just society."—Dolores Huerta, Labor Leader, Civil Rights Activist
* "I need 2 of these books, one to read to all the kids in my life and one to rip the illustrations out of so I can frame them! This MUST HAVE super fun read fills in the missing pieces in so many kids' (and grown-ups') educations. Couldn't recommend it enough."—Kathleen Hanna, singer, Bikini Kill, Le Tigre and The Julie Ruin
