Sinopsis:

From ground-breaking inventions to feats of endurance, Girls Can Do Anything is a compendium of more than 200 of the smartest, strongest, fastest and most incredible women whose achievements have contributed to the world we live in today.

Organized chronologically, this stimulating fact-o-pedia is subdivided into subjects -- science and innovation, sports and endurance, arts and literature, politics and world-building, business and industry, world records, and unusual achievements. The profiles are presented in double-page spreads with illustrations, photographs, quotes and trivia highlighting the straightforward text.

Here are examples of the accomplishments covered in Girls Can Do Anything:

  • The first computer programmer was a woman. Countess Ada Lovelace (1842)
  • The inventors of the life raft, windshield wiper, and Kevlar were all female. Maria Beaseley (1882), Mary Anderson (1903), Stephanie Kwolek (1966)
  • Beyoncé holds the record for Most Nominated Women in Grammy History (53) and she is also the highest-paid black musician in history.
  • Cosmonaut Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova was the first woman to fly in space and the first civilian to do so.

This is a perfect selection for anyone looking for intellectual stimulation or inspiration for a school project. It is ideal all young women and reluctant readers too.

On the cover, clockwise from top left: Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova, Frida Kahlo, Beyoncé, Malala Yousafzai, Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart.
