Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls - Staff Choice by Iris I read this book in March, but even so, I'm quite sure it's going to end up in my Top 5 favourite books of the year, because IT'S. FREAKING. AMAZING. Good Night Stories consists of 100 one-page biographies about women who changed the world, ranging from politicians to musicians, from athletes to artists, from ancient warrior queens to computer scientists. Every biography is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated portrait - these illustrations were done by 60 different female artists. These stories of female empowerment, independence and inspiration are appropriate for any age & gender, but especially girls and young women should definitely read them.
