She Did It! 21 Women Who Changed The Way We Think explores the background of 21 Women who changed our world in ways that is still being felt today! For being a book that only showed 21 Women, it was well written and pretty through on the info that all age groups can enjoy without being totally boring for the adults or get the younger readers not wanting to learn more about these special Women! My only problem with this book is the simple fact that it should have included a real picture of each Women to give everyone a better view on that person and plus, it would just make each Women seem even more real than before. Granted that I don't agree with some of these Women, it was still a fascinating read that will get the curious reader wanting to learn more about their life! Thank You to Emily Arnold McCully for this read that made me want to learn more about some of these Women who changed our world in ways that we can't ever forget! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from RockStar Book Tours!
