‘GOOD NIGHT STORIES FOR REBEL GIRLS: 100 Tales of Extraordinary Women’ by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo

Perhaps you have seen the small stack at VOLUME, or sample stories posted on VOLUME’s Facebook page. This is a beautifully designed book of famous and not-so-famous women from around the world, with their achievements told on the left page, followed by their portraits in diverse styles on the right. Where else can you read about a Colombian spy, an Indian boxer and a Nigerian activist alongside Hypatia and the Williams Sisters? Had this book been published 50 years ago, my parents might have read me one or two stories at bedtime. It should be treasured as a source of inspiration or encouragement by girls (and some boys?) of all ages for years to come.
