Rad American Women A-Z: Resources
I just love this. This is a wonderful book for kids—and their parents, teachers, and cool grown-up friends—documenting America’s famous and unsung heroines
Like all A-Z books, this one illustrates the alphabet—but instead of “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; C is for Carol Burnett, who defied assumptions about women in comedy; D is for Dolores Huerta, who organized farmworkers; and E is for Ella Baker, who mentored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and helped shape the Civil Rights movement.
But for X, I’d have liked to see a woman police officer, soldier, or first responder … for they are my favorite unsung heroines. You go, girls.
