    2. Reading about 40 rad women from around the world definitely lifts up a girl's spirit. If you thought that this is a man's world and women cannot reach places, this book will make you realize that women have done great things and can do so in the future as well.Before reading this book, I knew only 10 of the 40 women listed. It was great to learn about others. This book left me with awe and an "I can reach my goals no matter what" attitude.I did feel that a lot of amazing women were left out, but [...]

    3. Five stars! I loved this book. I consider myself fairly aware of famous women and women's history, but I was surprised and a bit embarrassed by how many featured women I was totally unfamiliar with! I was thrilled to learn about so many inspiring women from around the world. The book is written in an engaging and inspirational way. I really appreciated that the profiles were bite-sized; it was the perfect amount of information to introduce these amazing women - enough to feel like you gained som [...]

    4. I really liked this collection of stories about famous women from all over the world. There were all types of inspirational women included in this collection. I really liked the emphasis on women of color and women from countries other than the US. My one issue was that the art in this did not work for me. I appreciated that the art was made with paper and an exacto knife, but it just didn't fit my tastes. I also think having photos of the women and/or their works would have been more effective. [...]

    5. YES. Yes. Yes. Full Review: As a woman and feminist, I was so proud while reading this book. Let me praise it from the rooftops and hand sell it to every girl, boy, mom, dad, relative, friend, you name it. Everyone could benefit from reading this. I was devastated to discover I did not even know about most of these women before picking up this book. I felt myself longing to have had this book in my hands as a girl in school when it came time to pick the people I wanted to write my research paper [...]

    6. Finished this just in time for International Women's Day! What an inspiring account of women's stories from all over the world. I learned so much while reading this. Highly recommend!

    7. "What then is the evil in my being a woman?"Sor Juana Inés de la CruzWomen are incredible! I've read this short book with a look of extreme awe on my face. I hadn't heard about many of the women mentioned in it and that's just a shame. Here the lives and achievements and basically badassery of mothers, teachers, political and environmental activists, football players, singers, artists, computer programmers, pirates (!), suffragettes, princesses, spies are described and it was such an enjoyable [...]

    8. This is exactly the sort of book I hope to share with my future children.A collection of 40 mini-biographies of real women who made a different all over the world, throughout the history of humanity, I didn't expect to read it all in one sitting. Yet, I couldn't help myself. Rad Women Worldwide: Artists and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History is the inspirational book I needed in my own personal library. With only 40 stories to tell, Schatz does a wonderful [...]

    9. A great look at some amazing women. In most cases they are little known. The writing is solid and the art work is really great. This is the perfect book to show the young girls in your life just how strong, bold, decisive, fearless and passionate women can be. Everyone should grab this book!

    10. Good intro to a bunch of interesting women from around the world, some living, some from ages past. Would make an excellent holiday gift, just saying.

    11. RAD WOMEN WORLDWIDE is a very remarkable book. It is an account about numerous women in countless neighborhoods, institutions, cities and countries being systematically excluded, discriminated against, beat up, jailed and killed. All this, because of female’s basic, simple and natural desire to experience those inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and conversely many men’s need to control and dominate. As a result, women are/have been too often vilified, persecute [...]

    12. I LOVED this book! The short, concise installments make this a quick read for one sitting or fascinating little snippets to read as you can. I am so very proud to share a past full of women such as these.

    13. A fun little sampler of admirable Sheroes throughout history who have changed the world, each in her own way, representing various countries and cultures and talents. Appropriate for kids. Doesn't have the meat or grit or critical edge I'd be looking for as an adult reader. That said, the kid in me enjoyed it, and I may have learned a bunch of things I didn't know before. ("May have" because I'm not sure if all of those things are fact-checked.)

    14. **Received ARC from NetGalley**This is another great "Rad Women" book! The women in this book are diverse and their stories are told wonderfully, with each story being the perfect length to serve as a solid introduction and encourage further research. The illustrations are wonderful as well! Could this potentially be a series with more books to come? I sure hope so!

    15. I enjoyed reading about such a diverse group of women and learned a lot about people who I had heard about, but had never really delved into more deeply. I'm going to share this book with grade 5 students doing PYP Exhibition and I'm keen to hear their feedback considering the climate of the world stage right now.

    16. This review is originally posted on Carlie The Bookish Girl-----------------4.5 stars.-----------------“One can perfectly well philosophize while cooking supper.” — Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz in Answer to Sister FiloteaI was mindlessly browsing Book Depository’s bargain section when this book caught my eyes. Everything about this book appealed to me. Its vibrant colors, unique illustrations and the cool title, they made me click the ‘add to cart’ button in a split second.It wasn’t [...]

    17. This was a really cool book. I bought it on a whim because anything with the phrase "rad women" will catch my attention. All the mini biographies on each of the 40 women were easy to read and informative. This book would probably be a great starting point for someone who is interested in reading more about women's history. The book covers women from 30 different countries across a variety of time periods. Each story comes with its own illustration. There's also a list at the end of the book of m [...]

    18. I got this for my niece, but once I opened to the table of contents, I realized I had a lot to learn about rad women throughout history and loving now. It's a great read for anyone, but I think would have really made a big impact on me when I was younger. I hope it does for my niece!

    19. A stellar book. And now I need to find a book about when Josephine Baker spied for the French Resistance, because WHAT that’s fantastic.

    20. Loved this book, but would have liked it more with a bibliography of suggested additional reading at the end.

    21. Profiles on a variety of women which history seldom celebrates.A great started book for anyone questioning the power, fortitude, and intelligence of women.

    22. I loved learning about so many strong women throughout history in different fields and different walks of life. I wish that their stories and accomplishments were part of mainstream knowledge and education.

    23. Wish I could give this more than 5 stars. It was fantastic! Every profile made me want to read an entire book on the women. Also was very much not American or Euro centered, lots of powerful women from all over the globe. Highly recommend!

    24. I like this book quite a lot. The illustrations are just okay to me. It's a woodcut style that isn't really something I'd normally like, though with the rad(ical) theme, it makes more sense than cutesy Disney style illustrations. Each woman described gets about one page of writing, though a couple get 2 pages. The range of women geographically is excellent. And there are WOC profiled in European countries as well as the U.S. which I liked. So, the range of women is well done. I also like that at [...]

    25. Right up front, I have to say that the title is the most annoying thing about this book. Did anyone ever use “rad” as an adjective unironically? That said, “radical” is not an unfair term to apply to many of the women whose short biographies are written in this volume. There are forty stories set around 30 “countries”, starting with Enheduanna of Mesopotamia, the first named author that we have records of, and wrapping around the globe to Emma Goldman, born in Russia, anarchist and a [...]

    26. Beyonce has said that "girls run the world". And I believe we do. We can be anything we want to be. If this list of women doesn't inspire you, I don't know what will.I mentioned the great Beyonce. She is not in this book. But the great women who inspired her are featured here. I imagine future volumes would eventually include her and the rest of Destiny's Child, maybe Hillary Clinton (regardless of what you think of her politically), Oprah, and Emma Watson too. Hey, maybe we can see 2ne1 too. A [...]
