We're definitely celebrating awesome women on the blog today. Our Second Book of the Week is the stunning "Fantastically Great Women who Changed the World" by Kate Pankhurst...
Kate Pankhurst (descendent of Emmeline Pankhurst, the awesome suffragette campaigner for women's votes) takes us on a whirlwind tour of history, and introduces us to some of the most amazing and influential women of the last few centuries.

"Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World" is the sort of book that we really want to see shouted about from the rooftops, in an era where women's rights are still fought for, and female role models are more important than ever before.

In Kate's book, you'll meet some amazing characters, real life heroes who fought for what they believed in, and wowed the world with their amazing talents.

The book features Jane Austen, Gertrude Ederle, Coco Chanel, Frida Kahlo, Marie Curie, Mary Anning, Mary Seacole, Amelia Earhart, Agent Fifi, Sacagawa, Emmeline Pankhurst, Rosa Parks, Anne Frank - what a truly fabulous list!

Kate's brilliant illustrations bring their stories to life and the book is such a great read for all ages, it's a very good starting point for your own mighty girls at home who will all find a favourite story, encouraging them to research a little more and find out even more amazing facts about these stunning women.

What a flipping fantastic book!
