Gr 7 Up—This information-rich series profiles women of cultural importance in a clear and engaging manner. Shining a light on a diverse group of history makers who do not necessarily get a lot of mainstream attention, the books detail their subjects' childhoods, education, accomplishments, honors, etc., while also giving historical context. The titles ultimately underscore the power that women can have in the world. The narratives, which are broken down into chapters and subheadings, flow well. Text boxes with pull quotations, sidebars, and captioned photos-some color, some black and white-supplement the books. While the text-dense series might not be ideal for reluctant readers, students who doing reports will benefit from having access to it.
