Meet the Super SHEroes of History, the women who have shaped history and society since ancient times.

The names of most women of the ancient world have been forgotten, but those that echo across the centuries are a reminder of their power and achievements. The Pharaoh Hatshepsut ruled Egypt as a man and left a stunning funerary temple that still stands, while Lady Hao in Tang China and Boudicca in Roman Britain were both military commanders who led their people into battle. Elsewhere, women gained political influence in mighty empires, and were scholars and philosophers. This book tells their stories and describes their achievements.


From leading warriors into battle in Tang China to fighting for Civil Rights, exploring the deserts of Asia, and standing up for Indigenous peoples around the world, women have shaped history and society since ancient times. Often, however, their achievements went unrecognized. With lively text, compelling photography, and art, Super SHEroes of History brings herstory to life, illuminating the achievements of remarkable women from all backgrounds and all periods of time. The aim of this four-book series is to bring their inspiring stories to young readers — and to use engaging interactive prompts and questions to persuade them that anyone can grow up to change the world!
