Reviews

"This inspirational book tells the stories of twenty-five courageous women who rose above their circumstances to make a difference in the world. There are stories of women whom most people would be familiar with like Carrie Fisher and J.K. Rowling. There are also stories of women who most people probably never heard of like Irena Sendler, who rescued numerous children during the Holocaust, and Claudette Colvin, who refused to give up her seat on a public bus even before Rose Parks. If you need a little encouragement in your life during these difficult times, the lives of these women will give you hope." --Says Me Says Mom

"Who are the great women leaders in history? Who are the women heroes who personify "girl power"? Intrepid women heroes: When Nelson Mandela was imprisoned in South Africa's brutal Robben Prison, he tirelessly turned to the poem Invictus. The inspirational verse by the Victorian William Ernest Henley, penned on the occasion of the amputation of his leg. Still I Rise takes its title from a work by Maya Angelou and it resonates with the same spirit of an unconquerable soul, a woman who is captain of her fate. Just as Invictus brought solace to generations so does the contemporary classic. Still I Rise embodies the strength of character of the inspiring women profiled. Each chapter will outline the fall and rise of great women heroes who smashed all obstacles, rather than let all obstacles smash them. The book offers hope to those undergoing their own struggles." --The Library Blog
