Shaking Things Up: 14 Young Women Who Changed The World
In this book, you will find Mary Anning, who was just thirteen when she unearthed a prehistoric fossil. You’ll meet Ruby Bridges, the brave six-year-old who helped end segregation in the South. Maya Lin, who at twenty-one won a competition to create a war memorial, and then had to appear before Congress to defend her right to create.
Fresh, accessible, and inspiring, Shaking Things Up introduces fourteen revolutionary young women - each paired with a noteworthy female artist - to the next generation of activists and trail-blazers.
