An inspiring and radical celebration of 70 women, girls, and gender nonbinary people who have changed–and are still changing–the world, from the Civil Rights Movement and Stonewall riots through Black Lives Matter and beyond.

With a radical and inclusive approach to history, Modern HERstory profiles and celebrates seventy women and nonbinary champions of progressive social change in a bold, colorful, illustrated format for all ages.

Despite making huge contributions to the liberation movements of the last century and today, all of these trailblazers come from backgrounds and communities that are traditionally overlooked and under-celebrated: not just women, but people of color, queer people, trans people, disabled people, young people, and people of faith.

Authored by rising star activist Blair Imani, Modern HERstory tells the important stories of the leaders and movements that are changing the world right here and right now–and will inspire you to do the same.

“Activist, journalist, and founder of the non-profit Equality for HER, Imani’s book is the one we need during the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements…This collection would be a welcome addition to any introductory women’s, gender, and sexuality studies course. It should also be shared among feminists and those passionate about fighting oppression based on class, disability, gender, race, and sexuality.” – Library Journal (starred review)

“. . .accessible, awe-inspiring. . . .a new textbook of history’s heroes, free of erasure and white-male bias. . . .Imani’s collection is galvanizing and hopeful, leaving the radicals of tomorrow with proof that all people—no matter their race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or abilities—can change the world.” –Booklist (starred review)

“. . .an important introduction to social justice work, specifically that which pertains to racial, sexual, religious, and ableist discrimination and oppression. It provides a quick and accessible reference source for anyone interested in how change can be effected from various levels, from the academic front to grass-roots movements. It will show readers that activists are not monolithic and that they themselves are never too young, small, or different to work toward change. A crucial message of inclusivity and sensitivity is present throughout. This engaging work is about movers and shakers—folks who made moves and shook up the status quo for the betterment of all.” –Kirkus
