365 Days of Gutsy Women reveals hidden stories of fearless females from the beginning of time. Traditionally women were kept out of history books or simply forgotten in our patriarchal culture. This book provides a daily glimpse into the lives of courageous women who have gone before us. You will discover their stories, one for each day of the year. On Wednesday, you may learn about Mary Anning, a British fossil collector who discovered dinosaurs. On Friday, read about Queen Nanny of the Maroons, an 18th century African who successfully freed more than 1000 slaves on the island of Jamaica. Sunday you may read about the Hindu Goddess Parvati, known as “Mother Goddess” representing a universal source of energy and power. Throughout the book, you’ll read of artists, musicians, educators, philosophers, rebels, authors, poets and innovators who fought gender, racial and religious bias.
365 Days of Gutsy Women is the recognition of unforgettable and remarkably inspiring women. Each story is full of details that tell us how hard women worked to make changes that better all our lives.
I think this book should be in all schools. Each woman has made contributions that changed history, and I believe they need to be recognized and celebrated.
I genuinely enjoy these captivating stories and have so much appreciation for author Roenfanz. 365 Days of Gutsy Women is a celebration of the contributions and accomplishments of women throughout history. A must-read.
