Fantastically Great Women Who Saved The Planet

From deep in the ocean, around the Antarctic to the heart of a Tanzanian forest, women throughout history have made discoveries that have shown us just how amazing the Earth is and why we should look after it. Read about how Antarctic researcher Edith Farkas helped identify the hole in the Ozone Layer and made the whole world realize the effect of pollution and how Daphne Sheldrick's love for wildlife inspired her to care for young elephants who had been orphaned in the wild. In the Gambia, Isatou Ceesay is spreading the message about the damaging consequences of plastic waste and educates women in local communities about recycling. In the UK, Anita Roddick led the charge for ethical consumerism when she opened her cosmetics store, The Body Shop in 1976.

From Kate Pankhurst, descendant of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, the brilliant author of the Fantastically Great Women series, comes an engaging and playful introduction to thirteen women whose work and activism has shaped the world we live in.
