In the current era of girl empowerment it is so nice to see so many children’s books highlighting women who have achieved so much in their chosen field. We have seen the launch of Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls volume 1 and recently volume 2 which feature 100 extraordinary women from the past and the present.

On a global scale it’s great for children to see how many women internationally have achieved so much but it is also as equally important to see women who have achieved on a local scale.

Shout Out to the Girls: A Celebration of Australian Awesome Women shout-outs to 50 awesome Australian women and their incredible achievements. From Cathy Freeman to Turia Pitt, Edith Cowan to Julia Gillard, Mum Shirl to Vali Myers, plus rally car drivers, molecular biologists and more, this book is a celebration of women in all fields, from all walks of life, and from Australia’s past and present.

Brought to life by colourful illustrations from female artists, Shout Out to the Girls is the ultimate inspirational read for young and old.
