Girl Squads: 20 Female Friendships That Changed History
Women have been working together to make the world a good place for as long as women have been around. Girl Squads tells the stories of twenty different groups of women who have made real differences in the world. The stories are sorted into five sections — Athlete Squads, Political & Activist Squads, Warrior Squads, Scientist Squads, and Artist Squads. The book features stories such as the friendship between tennis rivals Madison Keyes and Sloan Stevens and the women from the movie Hidden Figures, but with some new information.
The stories span history from the beginning of the Common Era to present-day. Each essay is well researched and exceptionally well-written. They have the flavor of magazine articles from high-end magazines such as The Atlantic or Vanity Fair. The stories are fresh, fun, and entertaining. This book will empower young women to take chances and to find paths that will broaden their horizons. Author Sam Maggs has put together a remarkable series of essays covering inspiring stories—don’t miss it.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
