Modern HERstory: Stories of Women and Nonbinary People Rewriting History

We rated this book:


Getting young women interested in history, especially in activism, can be difficult at times. Most of the historical discourse, especially in schools, focuses on older white men. Modern HERstory is an illustrated book, and the perfect companion for high school aged girls; it will inspire them to reach for the stars. Blair Imani tells the stories of remarkable women who have taken on the world in their own unique way and have become leaders in their respective fields. Imani starts with people who fought for LGBTQ rights at Stonewall and then focuses on young leaders who are making an impact today. Each person has a page and illustration dedicated to her story. Readers will notice a theme; the author mostly discusses young, gender non-normative people who were born after 1970, some were born as early as the 2000s. Girls and non-binary people who take the time to read these brief profiles about the young people profiled here and the impact they have will find new role models and be inspired.
