Cool Women: The Thinking Girl`s Guide to the Hippest Women in History To celebrate the launch of The Cool Women Series, Girl Press re-releases an updated version of the award-winning bestseller, Cool Women. With a new foreword by The View`s Lisa Ling and updated info on the coolest women in history, the ultimate book of role models for girls is back, and just as smart & sassy as the women who are its subject. Breezy writing and high design make it all fun and accessible--a girl reading Cool Women will come away thinking that Madame Curie was brilliant, sure, but also that Madame Curie rocked.

Review:

The roster of female role models in Cool Women is extremely eclectic, spanning history and national boundaries to include Cleopatra and Amelia Earhart. Mexican freedom fighters stand side by side with Soviet WWII fighter pilots, Mother Jones, and Rosie the Riveter. Editor Pam Nelson places emphasis on women who overcame their own fears to go beyond society's expectations and succeed on their own terms. Cool Women also introduces many young readers to women about whom they might otherwise not learn until adulthood, such as Dorothy Parker, Janet Flanner, and Jane Goodall. The eye-catching design and friendly writing style (Josephine Baker's "to-do list" includes "Become toast of Paris") will keep girls' attention and hopefully inspire them to check out some of the references provided.
