Wonder Women Sam Maggs Quirk Books Header

Wonder Women
25 Innovators, Inventors, and Trailblazers Who Changed History
Hardcover | Kindle Edition
Written by Sam Maggs
Illustrated by Sophia Foster-Dimino
Publisher: Quirk Books
Publication Date: October 4th, 2016

This is definitely the age of the woman. We are so close to having a woman president for the FIRST time! Of course, it’s long overdue. It’s also Wonder Woman’s 75th anniversary. So it is appropriate that Quirk Books have released this “wonder” of a book called Wonder Women: 25 Innovators, Inventors, and Trailblazers Who Changed History by Sam Maggs.

Although it says 25 women, there are so many more women in here than that, including some Q&As with some incredible females. Without these gender rule-breaking phenomenons, women would not be doctors (thank you Blackwell sisters in the 19th century!), we would not have paper bags (thank you Margaret Knight!), and the feeding tube would be fiction (thank you Bessie Blount Griffin!). And there’s so much more. You think of how hard women have it now, fighting stereotypes in this man’s world to this day, and you just marvel at the success through the struggle during less enlightened times.
