Review 2017

Author Marcia Williams has written a children’s book celebrating women throughout history, starting back in Ancient Egypt with Cleopatra. Each double page celebrates the life of one woman, taking the reader on a journey of their life, comic book style.

Even as an adult there were a few things that I didn’t know about some of these women – Including that Cleopatra had a son, I really don’t remember learning about that at school. There was also a couple of women I had never heard of before too.

The book is very informative and includes lots of women, from royalty to activists. The author goes on to make a note about how she couldn’t include all the famous women in history and at the back has small bits of information on a few others too.

I would love to see a book that would teach children about the more obscure women in history that do get overlooked, as the likes of Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth I, Marie Curie and Florence Nightingale, whilst they should be remembered and children taught about them, you will find information on them in a lot of books.

For a child that craves knowledge, this book is just perfect. For young girls, this book shows them just how powerful women can be, and that it certainly isn’t a mans world but a world where men and woman can be equal.

About the Author

Marcia William

Marcia Williams began to develop her distinctive comic-book style at an early age: “When I was about ten and wrote home to my family from boarding school,” she says, “I never wrote normal letters. I tried to tell my family about what I was doing in a way that was more fun. Also, my parents didn’t let me read comic books, so I decided to create my own.”
