5-Star Review
"Girls Rule is a fantastic non-fiction book that celebrates female achievements throughout hundreds of years of history and is written by an inspirational role model herself, double Paralympic gold medalist and five times World Champion Archery sports star, Danielle Brown. This book documents 50 amazing, diverse, accomplished and determined females; it features their childhood stories, early dreams and their challenges and perseverance through their lives. ... As well as being a source of information for each particular woman, the book as a whole shines a light proudly on the feminist movement, on the shifts within the whole landscape of women in society over many, many years across the entire world. Girls Rule is a brilliant, captivating and awe-inspiring collection of extraordinary role models."


4-Star Review
"I loved that the women featured in this book are from a wide range of diverse places and backgrounds, with their various achievements spread far and wide and throughout history, right up to the modern day."

4-Star Review
"The selection of women is diverse in every sense but all the women have one thing in common: they had to overcome extraordinary odds to achieve more than they ever thought they could. The message - there is a way around every barrier for those courageous enough to persevere - is empowering."

Juno 1st December 2023

"A collection of wonderfully told stories of women from across the world and throughout history who thought differently, pushed boundaries, challenged ideas and achieved things beyond what was thought possible. We encounter politicians, peacekeepers, pioneers, activists, spokeswomen and survivors. Their legacy is not only the positive ways they changed the world, but the way their actions show us we can do the same."

"For each woman there is a full colour double page spread to find out about them. There is a great mix of well-known women, with some less so, which were interesting to learn about. My daughter has loved reading about these women. They are such an inspiration to young girls!"
