The history of women's rights from 4500 BC to today

In just over 200 pages, Mikki Kendall manages to cover over 6000 years of women's history. Starting in antiquity and the early struggles that women had in what is now Europe and going all the way to the #MeToo movement, she skillfully weaves together the lives of hundreds of women who had a part in the movements to fight for women's rights. Kendall gives a spotlight to women of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and those with physical and mental disabilities, who are often overlooked when it comes to the history of women's rights. Wonderful illustrations and an overarching theme to show where the fight came from and how it continues today.
