"Athletes are the greatest of all feminists. If a woman's chief occupation is no longer needlework, if strong is finally beautiful, and if all occupations are open, it's thanks to champions like these."
--Sally Jenkins, author of The Real All Americans and sports columnist for The Washington Post
"Strong Like Her binds the stories of incredible women with their own unique strengths and motivations. It is a celebration of women's power, proving that there is nothing we cannot do."
--Allyson Felix, nine-time Olympic medalist
"Shapley's book puts stereotypes that women are "weak" to shame." --The Tempest
"A book that will leave readers feeling inspired and powerful."
"This celebration of female athleticism and insightful look into what it means to be a physically strong woman trades anger for calm, and incredulity for hope, but leaves room for Shapley's sense of humor, countering pain with laughter in the only way millennials know how."
--New Orleans Review
