Book Review - She Did It!: 21 Women Who Changed the Way We Think by Emily Arnold McCully + Giveaway

Women have made their mark throughout history but, we sometimes forget about them and their story. Take, for example, the women who helped NASA, Marie Curie, or Ada Lovelace, women who excel in their field but, were sometimes forgotten. This book introduces readers to twenty-one women who challenged the status quo and made their voices heard. These women are artists, business innovators to social justice advocates.

The inspiring book is filled with facts about women who help inspire and change the world. I found the book to be an interesting read to learn about these women lives. However, I was a bit disappointed that each one woman doesn't have an illustration. Overall, a good inspirational read for both children and adults.
