Review quotes

"Having access to these women’s voices, to literally hear them saying their iconic and critical words creates a magical connection between readers and these women, and I’ve never seen (well, heard) anything else like it."- Ciarra Chavarria; @girlsreadtheworld, NBC News, Know Your Value Blog

"The creators offer an appealing package with the book’s puffy cover, interactive features, and Honesta’s vibrant portraiture... The selected women represent only a tiny fraction of outspoken women from history, but the authors’ selections are sound and serve as an invitation to readers to discover more."
