Do you want to learn about the incredible women who changed sport forever?
With 21 illustrated biographies, The Rise of Women in Sport looks at the ladies who not only got to the top of their game but broke down barriers and fought for what is right along the way. They are the people who refused to back down when they were told they couldn’t win. And they are extraordinary women who overcame racism, hatred, and restrictions to succeed.
In these pages, we will look at the likes of Gertrude Ederle, the woman who swam from France to England when everyone said she would drown. We will learn about Bethany Hamilton, the young girl who lost an arm in a shark attack yet returned to the water 28 days later. And we will get to know 19 other women who all changed the world in their own remarkable way.
The Rise of Women in Sport combines sport, reading and feminism in this wonderful read for boys, girls, men and women alike!
The 21 ladies in this book made it possible for women across the world to compete and enjoy a whole variety of sports and their stories are nothing short of extraordinary.
The Rise of Women in Sport is the perfect gift for young sports-lovers, feminists and anybody who wants to be inspired by the courage of some of the greatest sportswomen there has ever been.
The stories in The Rise of Women in Sport are designed for older kids and young teens, but they will thrill and inspire readers of any age.
