A fantastic book that teaches children that gender does not make a difference when it comes to creating change in the world. 

It is imperative that parents and teachers inspire the children in their care to want to make sure that they each, individually do things to enrich the world they will inherit. 

Female children need to know that other females have gone on to do amazing and inspiring things and that they can follow in their footsteps. 

Male children, in the past, were taught that they were better in many ways than their female counterparts. This must not continue. They need to know that each and every person, regardless of gender, can create change and thus are capable of doing amazing things. 

Books such as this one are extremely important. 

I rate this book as 5 OUT OF 5 STARS ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What you see if what you get: This book features introductory vignettes about 101 women (from around the world and a wide variety of fields). In its pages you will see sports heroes, activists, scientists and more. After reading this ARC, I preordered a copy for my classroom library.

A very enjoyable quick read for older and younger women alike. A lot of the women in this book were unknown to me, and I loved learning about their achievements.

It's fitting that we read this book on Women's Equality Day in the U.S.  Even though this book is a UK publisher, it really highlights some amazing women that contributed to and are still contributing to the fight for equality for women by being trailblazers, and paving the way for the future.  Women like Emmeline Pankhurst, who helped lead the suffrage movement in the UK. Women like Wang Zhenyi, whose work in math and the study of the moon led to having a crater on Venus named after her. And many more women.  It's an excellent read for kids of all ages - short but not too short stories, great illustrations, and loads of girl power!

I read this book with my young daughters. It was wonderful to be able to share this compilation of strong, successful women. The stories were a good length to hold the attention of my 5 and 7 year old. I didn’t read every story yet but will continue to go through it with them as time goes on.

Leaders and activists, politicians and businesswomen, this book briefly describes 101 awesome women with colorful illustrations. This is a great resource for a variety of patron needs.

I enjoyed this book but it was honestly a bit too simplistic for me personally. However it is a book aimed primarily at younger readers so I think they would get a lot more enjoyment out of it. I think it offers some good basic information as a way to help introduce these women, but I kept thinking 'well you left out this or that' because I've read so many of these types of books before. Still, it featured a very diverse group of women and there were several I hadn't heard of so that was nice. If i had to give any big criticisms it would be to even out the entry lengths - some women had literally a single paragraph while others had a whole page - and also as always with these books I would like to see more trans women featured [this had only one - Laverne Cox].

This collected biography covers a lot of trailblazing women, including many lesser-known women. However because of the large number of women covered in such a short book, most women only receive maybe two paragraphs about their lives and achievements. I would use this book to start the conversation about the fantastic women covered, and it may inspire kids to seek out more information elsewhere.

This is the kind of book that I need a hard copy of.  It is not the kind of book that lends itself well as an ebook.  It is not the kind of book that I want to read straight through.  It is mainly a resource, something where I want to look up a certain person, or read about a few fierce woman at a time.  

This would be a great resource for a middle school classroom.

This book is amazing. Informative and easy to read, it’s a great book for children to read to learn about incredible women and the impact they’ve had on the world. The thing I love most about it is that it’s not just the obvious but also women who will become even greater than they already are and are still only young - like Simone Biles. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

A great collection of women who have made an impact in our world through Sport, Entertainment and STEM, 101 Awesome Women Who Changed Our World is a book for older children about historic women. 

The people included are incredibly diverse and alive. I find with a lot of the books that show women, often the women are historic and though in many cases this is the situation in this book, often it is not which is rare. Including women such as Malala Yousafzai and Simone Biles, these are women young girls can look up to right now and I think that’s important. 

To accompany these biographies are some really lovely illustrations of these women, ones that stand out for me include entries such as Majlinda Kelmendi, Chantal Petitclerc and Laverne Cox - the illustrator has added little details in this book too, that really add to the stories about the women and it brings them to life. 

It’s an enjoyable read filled to the brim with incredible women and illustrations that add to this book beautifully, I just expected more from this as this book.

Received this as an ARC from netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I don't generally read children's non-fiction but the fact that it's about the amazing women in our society really caught my attention and so I requested it. I was so excited to get this arc and it did not disappoint me.

It contains really beautiful illustrations of the women mentioned and also other illustrations where appropriate. The information is very educational and to the point and I really liked that. Quotes were also included where necessary which is a very nice touch. 

I loved this book and would definitely recommend it to not only children but everyone.
