This little book provided some brief information on some of the women that inspired RBG. This would be a good starting point to discover some potentially less-well known but impactful women from history. The accompanying illustrations were beautiful.

Thank you to netgalley for providing an e-galley for review. RBG's Brave & Brilliant Women is a great collection of Jewish women that are both well known and have been forgotten from history. These short chapters are bite size for easy reading. The one, fairly major drawback is that the further reading or bibliographic section is missing, as it is for most collections of this nature. This would have taken this book from good to great.

Social justice and civic responsibility are a part of deep Jewish values and customs. This amazing collection introduces many brave Jewish women throughout history who made great contributions yet most were left out of history books. This is a perfect read for middle and high school girls anywhere. A must-have for every school library.

This book provides the readers with the opportunity to review biographies from inspiring Jewish women. This book would be a great addition to any bookshelf. The women described in the book are great role models for females of all ages.

This book is a fantastic read, especially for those Jewish girls who feel like there isn't literature that they can relate to. Anyone can benefit from learning about powerful, amazing women from history, but this book can inspire young people all over the world.

Nadine Epstein collaborated with Ruth Bader Ginsberg on a list of 33 brave and brilliant Jewish women. As the introduction said, there is an age-old connection between social justice and Jewish tradition. Deuteronomy 16:20a says “Justice, justice you shall pursue.”
We are introduced to women from Biblical times to the present who worked for justice with bravery and determination. Five of the Biblical women are connected to Moses—- his sister, mother, adopted mother, and midwives. 
Several of these women I had never heard of; it was great to read about them. Bee Johnson illustrated portraits of each woman. I googled the modern times women to see their photographs.
My favorite woman, of course, was RBG. Four years ago, I sent my copy of  Notorious RBG through my postal book club round robin. I also enjoyed reading about Emma Lazarus and Emmy Noether.
I highly recommend this book be added to schools and libraries to be read. 
Many thanks to Netgalley and Delacourte Press for permitting me to read this book about inspiring women.
