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.

In Rad Women Worldwide, writer Kate Schatz and artist Miriam Klein Stahl tell fresh, engaging, and inspiring tales of perseverance and radical success by pairing well researched and riveting biographies with powerful and expressive cut-paper portraits. Featuring an array of diverse figures from 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. -Goodreads


This is a colorful, well design book, that is laid out in a very organized way. Each mini-biography is accompanied by block cut portraits of the woman being written about. While the portraits are not very flattering on a few of the women, the style is consistent and beautiful in a rough, artistic way. This book has revealed to me women around the world and across time who were revolutionary. This is a very interesting coffee table book that I recommend for the feminist in your life.
