The Book of Awesome Women

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~


Synopsis (from Amazon): Super women ─ who are some of the most awesome women in history?


Sheroes: Women hold up half the sky and, most days, do even more of the heavy lifting including childbearing and child-rearing. All after a long day at the office. Women have always been strong, true heroes ─ sheroes, oftentimes unacknowledged. As we shake off the last traces of a major patriarchal hangover, women are coming into their own. In the 21st Century, all women can fully embrace their fiery fempower and celebrate their no-holds-barred individuality. It is time to acknowledge the successful women of the world.

Super women as female role models: From the foremothers who blazed trails and broke barriers, to today's women warriors from sports, science, cyberspace, city hall, the lecture hall, and the silver screen, The Book of Awesome Women paints 200 portraits of powerful and inspiring role models for women and girls poised to become super women of the future.

Successful women: Some of the super women you will meet in The Book of Awesome Women:

  • Dian Fossey
  • Martina Navratilova
  • Sojourner Truth
  • Indira Ghandi 
  • Aretha Franklin
  • Margaret Mead
  • Coretta Scott King
  • Georgia O'Keeffe
  • Jackie Joyner-Kersee
  • Joan Baez
  • Eleanor Roosevelt
  • Coco Chanel
  • Anita Hill

    Now is the time to acknowledge the greatness of women!



One (or more) Sentence Summary: I love books that promote awesomeness.  Add to that, women who have done amazingly awesome things in the past and you have a winner.  The Book of Awesome Women is something should be celebrated and shared with others (especially your kids, grandchildren, nieces and nephews).  I was recently going through a what I will call a personal struggle; however, after reading The Book of Awesome Women, I realized my struggle was not real and I needed to move on.  Thanks Awesome Women!

This week bought a bracelet for an amazing friend with "She needed a hero, so she became one," etched on it.  I have wrapped it up with a copy of The Book of Awesome Women.  An awesome gift for an awesome women.  I can't wait to give it to her next week.
