She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton

Hot off the press! Chelsea Clinton uses that famous phrase first used to speak about Elizabeth Warren to talk about 13 women who have changed the world. (Also, have you noticed the diversity on the cover? YAAAS!) 

A is for Activist by Innosanto Nagara

When my daughter was in the womb, I went out to DC for the WeWon’tWait Summit, where activists from all over the country gathered to discuss the pressing issues of our time. During that trip, I said my baby was an activist from the womb, and this is the perfect book to teach her what it’s all about!

The book uses the letters of the alphabet to highlight important topics or people in activism. For example, x is for Malcolm X, i for immigrants.

Feminist Baby by Loryn Brantz

Feminist Baby wants you to know that she isn’t tied down to the gender restrictions society puts on her– she can wear pink OR blue and wear whatever she wants. (Yaaas!)

This Little Trailblazer by Joan Holub and Daniel Roode

This board book is the perfect introduction to amazing trailblazing women like Rosa Parks and Sonia Sotomayor. (And another amazing diverse cover!)
