And the list of great women continues, spanning several centuries, multiple professions, and 26 diverse individuals. There are artists and abolitionists, scientists and suffragettes, rock stars and rabble-rousers, and agents of change of all kinds. The book includes an introduction that discusses what it means to be rad and radical, an afterword with 26 suggestions for how you can be rad, and a resource guide with ideas for further learning and reading.

Dynamite Hit of Inspiration
Written for young people, and for parents to share with their kids, "Rad American Women” is a dynamite hit of inspiration.
I guarantee there will be at least one woman on this list whose life story is new to you. I thought I was a feminist trivia queen, but the authors came up with life’s little details I had never heard of!
I finished this collection with solid fist pump.

Really short book with 26 rad women arranged by alphabet. Because of the ABC format, the author was inspired to include women who might be left out of other lists.
Some of the women: pianist Hazel Scott, Olympian Florence Joyner, artist Maya Lin, comedian Carol Burnett, dancer Isadora Duncan, activist Angela Davis.
The most poignant entry is for X, all the women forgotten by history.
An excellent book for kids and springboard for further research.
Nice having two narrators.
