Product description


New York Times Bestseller

As seen in Shelf Awareness, Elle, Upworthy, Bust, Fusion, The Advocate, 7x7

An international array of badass women through the ages and up to the present...[and] a happy contrast to so many Eurocentric "world" surveys.
--Kirkus Reviews

[R]eadily accessible to children and teens...Stahl's cut-paper portraits provide handsome visual tributes to the women.
--Publishers Weekly

This collection of energetic profiles is sure to spark discussion and encourage readers passionate about women's history and rights to do further research.
--School Library Journal

[F]resh, engaging, and inspiring tales of perseverance and radical success...pairing well researched and riveting biographies with powerful and expressive cut-paper portraits.

"Fascinating stories of women doing bold, pioneering, and meaningful things in times ranging from ancient Mesopotamia to the present day. Lots to learn about in fields of science, medicine, mountain climbing, the arts, literature, and much more. Every story is eye-opening, whether the woman profiled is widely known or previously unknown outside her home country."
--Common Sense Media

For an excellent new book about 40 pioneering women who challenged their societies' limitations on women, we highly recommend Rad Women Worldwide for ages 10 and up.
--A Mighty Girl

Imagine learning history right the first time, without ever having to unlearn all the lies and omissions. RAD WOMEN WORLDWIDE lifts the doom--maybe this is, in fact, a wonderful time to grow up.
--Miranda July, artist, writer, and filmmaker

This book needs to be in every school, library, and home.
--Margaret Cho, comedian

A work of astounding beauty and urgent importance. The enthralling stories of these brave, amazing women--and the stunning illustrations that accompany them--are sure to move and inspire kids and adults alike. We all need this book: girls, boys, mothers, fathers, educators, engaged citizens--really, all of us who care about a more just and balanced world. Thank goodness I don't have to raise my daughter and son without it!
--Novelist Carolina de Robertis, author of THE GODS OF TANGO

How do you help young girls change the universe? Show them the women who have already done it! This beautiful book shows girls (and boys) the power and importance of each person who decides to make a difference. A celebration of smart, brave, tough, creative, kind, beautiful, hopeful, and wise women!
-Andrea Beaty, author of Rosie Revere Engineer and Iggy Peck Architect

Our history books are filled with incredible stories of heroes and rebels, villains and visionaries, but too often it's men who occupy all the starring roles. RAD WOMEN WORLDWIDE boldly challenges the male-dominated version of history we've been sold, offering us a new vision of the past that brings women out of the historical shadows. In these pages, women are made visible at every step of humanity's journey, across continents and generations, revealing that often we, too, have dared to change the world.
--Anita Sarkeesian, Feminist Frequency founder and feminist media critic

In past generations, a globe was an essential gift for any child, a way for her/him/them to sense the wide, round scope of the world without even having to travel. RAD WOMEN WORLDWIDE is this moment's equivalent of the globe--a gift that will help every child understand the world they share with powerful women everywhere.
--Sarah Jones, Tony-Award winning performer, poet, and UNICEF ambassador

Schatz and Stahl are a pair of 21st century Howard Zinns, making the Western canon bawl with this mindblowing, history-expanding, beautifully executed roll call of badass women past and present. Our daughters and son need this book, and so do their parents.
Adam Mansbach, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Go the F**k to Sleep

Wow! Like it's predecessor, Rad American Women A to Z, this wonderful book is a browser's delight. Dipping into every story, examining the blunt, bright woodcuts, brings singular pleasures. There are woman to discover and woman to rediscover. And the best part? A long list of more woman to learn about winding it up. Daring to hope there will be more Rad Women books.
--Karen Cruze, Santa Clarita Public Library

Their second well-researched collection of gorgeously detailed paper-cut illustrations is accessible to young readers but fascinating for grown-ups, too. Rad women in this collection are humble, brilliant and theatrical. They pursue human rights as well as women's rights.
--Cheryl Krocker McKeon, manager, Book Passage, San Francisco, in Shelf Awareness --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Book Description
