They've led hundreds of thousands of people in climate strikes, founded non-profits, given TED talks, and sued their governments — and they're all under the age of 25. These fearless girls and young women from all over the world are standing up to demand change when no one else is. In Girl Warriors, you'll get to meet these inspiring environmental activists and learn more about how you can help their cause!
You'll meet girls from all over the world, from a girl with cerebral palsy from Harlem who tackles how climate change and disability rights interact, to a girl from Brazil whose love of surfing prompted her to work to protect our planet's oceans. With each story including a color photograph, social media handles, responses to interview questions, and more, this is a hopeful picture of the future of environmentalism that invites young readers to see that they can be activists too.
"The four-page text of each profile offers descriptions of the activist in action and quotes by and about her, with her activist origin story woven in. These young people are both remarkable in their hard work and dedication and also ordinary in the sense that they simply decided this issue was too important not to focus on — a winning combination that invites readers to get involved.... Engaging, brilliant, and intersectional." — Kirkus Reviews
