Rad American Women rightfully honors the female voices who have made an unforgettable, indelible impact on art, literature, culture, social justice and beyond. From rocker Patti Smith to activist Angela Davis, author Ursula K. Le Guin to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, these are the “rebels, trailblazers and visionaries who shaped our history... and our future!”

Illustrated by rad artist and educator Miriam Klein Stahl in her signature style that boldly communicates the personality and strength of each luminary, this is a book about women you need to know, and legacies that have changed the course of everyday life. A New York Times bestseller, it’s described as a book for “children, their parents, teachers and cool grown-up friends,” and that includes you. —Kristin Farr
