Girl Power

This was for me something that young girls should read or hear in their formative years. Good job.

Essential

Ostensibly a YA history book, I loved it as a 41 year old Scottish bloke. Inspiring stories (and a few scary ones) of women throughout history, from all over the globe, who have not let the surrounding patriarchy define them. I was a bit worried that they'd be too kind to Thatcher, but I needn't have been: their take was alright with me (she's in the Villains section).

When my kids are old enough, I'll nudge them towards it, but it's essential for any age.
