Two women sit down with a girl with cups of tea and photographs — pictures of their own family, but also pictures of inspiring people past and present, who have helped drive change and make the world a better place. They tell the girl about how these women — artists, politicians, athletes, and more — lifted up those who came after them on their shoulders, so they could reach even greater heights. And they leave her with an important question: "Who will stand on YOURS?"
This is a stunning love letter to the important women who shape us — from our own mothers and grandmothers to the legends who paved the way for girls and women everywhere. Monica Clark-Robinson's lyrical text encourages young girls to learn about the powerful and trailblazing women who laid the path for their own lives and empowers them to become role models themselves, while acclaimed illustrator Laura Freeman's remarkable art showcases a loving intergenerational family and encourages girls to find female heroes in their own lives.
