World shakers

inspiring women activists
"There were rules that forced Muslim women athletes like Ibtihaj Muhammad to choose between competition and wearing hijab. There were laws that caused Indigenous women like Mary Two-Axe Earley to lose their official First Nations status when they married white men. When there was no law to prevent violence against women, Afghan politician Fawzia Koofi tried to pass one. All of the women here went against the rules, laws, and traditions that surrounded them. Sometimes, they used their voice, like disability rights activist Judy Heumann, and Alicia Garza, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter. Sometimes, they challenged the very way we see ourselves, like plus-size model Olakemi Obi. And sometimes, they led by example, like the STEM-loving Afghan Dreamers, and anti-apartheid politician Pregs Govender. These women, and the others you will find in this book, had the courage to shake the world and make it better for the women who will follow in their footsteps"--Provided by publisher.
