Book of Awesome Women: Boundary Breakers, Freedom Fighters, Sheroes & Female Firsts

by Becca Anderson

HIS-story is well known for its erasure of the lived experiences of the people that challenge the status quo (because the pursuit of happiness and equality is just soooo un-patriotic amiright?), but these "hidden figures" stories deserve to be told.

 

The Book of Awesome Women is a celebration of the strong sheroes that were instrumental in shaping our world from the ground up. From writing the first algorithm, to fighting Nazi's in wooden planes, to creating the computer code for NASA that sent man to the moon, women have always been warriors on the front lines in the pursuit of knowledge and paving the way for the next generation.
