Summary
From the authors of the New York Times bestselling book Rad American Women A-Z, comes a bold new collection of 40 biographical profiles, each accompanied by a striking illustrated portrait, showcasing extraordinary women from around the world.

Rad Women Worldwide  tells fresh, engaging, and inspiring tales of perseverance and radical success by pairing well researched and riveting biographies with powerful and expressive cut-paper portraits. From 430 BCE to 2016, spanning 31 countries around the world, the book features an array of diverse figures, including Hatshepsut (the great female king who ruled Egypt peacefully for two decades) and Malala Yousafzi (the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize) to Poly Styrene (legendary teenage punk and lead singer of X-Ray Spex) and Liv Arnesen and Ann Bancroft (polar explorers and the first women to cross Antarctica). This progressive and visually arresting book is a compelling addition to women's history and belongs on the shelf of every school, library, and home. 

Together, these stories show the immense range of what women have done and can do. May we all have the courage to be rad!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A follow-up to Rad American Women A-Z (2015), this worldwide version is identical in format but more extensive in scope, profiling 39 boundary-busting women, including, poignantly, The Stateless, or the 60 million forcibly displaced people in the world, of whom almost 80 percent are women or children. There's no mistaking, or indeed faulting, the pro-feminist message of this book, which makes some of the hagiographic choices rather perplexing. (Are we really keen to have girls adopt violent pirates the book cites two as role models? Does Winnie Mandela deserve a nod in the appendix, which lists some 250 subjects for further study?) Still, the collection, with its stark black-and-white cut-paper illustrations, makes fascinating reading. Among the predictable (if commendable) miniprofiles Sor Juana, Miriam Makeba are strewn stories of other, undersung crusaders, some historical, some striving still. Readers of either gender could well find a role model in the India-born U.S. astronaut Kalpana Chawla, or in Wangari Maathai, whose Green Belt Movement in Africa resulted in the planting of more than 30 million environment-reviving trees.--MacDonald, Sandy Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this companion to the picture book Rad American Women A-Z, Schatz writes short biographies of 40 noteworthy female figures past and present; though the book is technically published for adults, the brief profiles are readily accessible to children and teens. The subjects include artists, writers, revolutionaries, musicians, scientists, and politicians: Kalpana Chawla was the first Indian woman in space; Kasha Jacqueline Nagabasera is a Ugandan LGBTQ-rights activist; Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz was a self-taught 17th-century scholar credited with writing "the first feminist text of the New World"; and Junko Tabei was a Japanese "housewife and mother" who became the first woman to climb the South Summit of Mt. Everest. Josephine Baker, Venus and Serena Williams, and Malala Yousafzai are among the better-known figures. As in the previous book, Stahl's cut-paper portraits provide handsome visual tributes to the women. Author's agent: Charlotte Sheedy, Charlotte Sheedy Literary.
