March 1st through March 31st marks Women’s History Month! Celebrate with these stories about strong, fearless women by Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing.
My daughters and I read through these three stories and were inspired by how each of these women made a difference by simply following their passion with unceasing determination. They were true to themselves at all obstacles even though they were all living in a time when it wasn’t so easy to lead as a women. Without fear, they continued their work, made their voices known, and as a result made an impact in the world.
