*Note: This post is about the books we have in our home, of course there are MANY more books that highlight amazing women! (You can see another list of books here).

. I also love these books because they show that all people, even those who now we see as super successful, have had adversity in their lives, but have overcome these to be successful people who use their voices to stand up for others.

  1. Here are two more books for your list. One came out in 2015, Madam President: The Women Who Paved the Way, and just coming out this spring is Growing Up Supremely: The Women of the U.S. Supreme Court, which are designed for younger kids to see how these great women in our government experienced their childhoods and developed into leaders in our community. Both books are by Prof. Nichola Gutgold, who is a prominent expert in women in politics and leadership. Happy to send you review copies if interested! 🙂 (they will be offered for free on kindle in March (dates posted on @eifrigpublishing on facebook)
