The stories of twenty Irish feminists who rocked the system and changed history, told by one of Ireland's leading writers for young people.

Twenty illustrated essays on Irish women, historical and contemporary, who have defied cultural norms around femininity and achieved great things. The subjects include Irish women from Queen Medb to Eileen Gray, from Constance Markievicz to Sonia O'Sullivan, covering stateswomen, artists, writers, activists and rebels of all kinds.

Written by multi award-winning author and first Laureate na nÓg (Irish Children's Laureate), Siobhán Parkinson.

Perfect for use in schools as well as for leisure reading, this collection celebrates the role of women in Ireland's changing society.

With a foreword from political activist and first lady of Ireland, Sabina Higgins.

'This book will inspire all its readers to play their part in creating a world that is fair, harmonious and equal.' - Sabina Higgins
