From the New York Times best-selling authors of Rad Women Worldwide and Rad American Women A-Z, a bold and brave collection of stories and art about inspiring and accomplished girls who have made positive impacts on the world before the age of 20.
You might know the stories of Malala Yousafzai, Anne Frank, Jazz Jennings, and Joan of Arc, but have you heard about Yusra Mardini, a Syrian refugee who swam a sinking boat to shore, saved twenty lives, then went on to compete as an Olympic swimmer; or Trisha Prabhu, who invented an anti-cyberbullying app at age 13; or Mary Beth Tinker, who wore an armband to school to protest the Vietnam War, which led the Supreme Court to uphold free speech rights for students?
In Rad Girls Can, you’ll learn about a diverse group of girls who are living rad lives, whether excelling in male-dominated sports like boxing, rock climbing, or skateboarding; speaking out against injustice and discrimination; expressing themselves through dance, writing, and music; or advocating for girls around the world.
Each profile is paired with the dynamic paper-cut art that made the authors’ first two books New York Times best sellers.
If you’re looking for ways to inspire the next generation of kids, make Rad Girls Can your new bedtime reader.
