She couldn't have been more than seven or eight years old. "Go ahead, ask your question," her father urged, nudging her forward. She smiled shyly and said, "You're my hero. Who's yours?" Many people — especially girls — have asked Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton that same question over the years. Now, they answer by sharing the stories of the gutsy women who have inspired them — women with the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions, and get the job done.
Inside this book, they talk about the heroes who influenced them, from Civil Rights activist Dorothy Height to scientist Rachel Carson to courageous activist Malala Yousafzai. If history shows one thing, it’s that the world needs gutsy women; this book will help inspire the ones who are already out there.
