You might know the stories of Malala Yousafzai, Anne Frank, Jazz Jennings, and Joan of Arc. But have you heard about Yusra Mardini, a Syrian refugee who swam a sinking boat to shore, saved twenty lives, then went on to compete as an Olympic swimmer? Or Trisha Prabhu, who invented an anti-cyberbullying app at age 13? Or Barbara Rose Johns, whose high school protest helped spark the civil rights movement?

In Rad Girls Can, you’ll learn about a diverse group of young women who are living rad lives, whether excelling in male-dominated sports like boxing, rock climbing, or skateboarding; speaking out against injustice and discrimination; expressing themselves through dance, writing, and music; or advocating for girls around the world.

Each profile is paired with the dynamic paper-cut art that made the authors’ first two books New York Times best sellers. Featuring both contemporary and historical figures, Rad Girls Can offers hope, inspiration, and motivation to readers of all ages and genders.

Rad Girls Can acts as the spark igniting the next generation of diverse (s)heroes.” —Eva Lewis, age 19, artist, activist, and founder of Youth 4 Black Lives

“The Rad series just keeps getting better! The kids I’ve read this with are immediately engrossed—which I think is the most telling measure of a book. They flip back and forth through the pages wanting to know who each young person is, finding possibility in the stories of others both like themselves, and very different, from around the world.” —Innosanto Nagara, author of A is for Activist

Rad Girls Can: Stories of Bold, Brave, and Brilliant Young Women offers a unique mix of girlhood experiences that readers of all ages will enjoy. Vignettes feature successful accomplishments of girls across a wide range of historical eras, cultural backgrounds, popular cultures, and religious affiliations whose artistry and expertise break boundaries and make a difference in the world–from author Anne Frank, astronomer Maria Mitchell, and activist Ruby Bridges to actress Amandla Stenberg, teenage transgender leader Jazz Jennings, and ballerina Misty Copeland. Through these powerful portraits of girls from all walks of life, from artists and athletes to scientists and scholars, Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl make a valuable contribution to the field of girlhood studies.” —Dr. Nazera Sadiq Wright, associate professor of English at the University of Kentucky and author of Black Girlhood in the Nineteenth Century
