With this enjoyable collection of short profiles of amazing girls, the creators of the popular Rad Women books hope to inspire young readers to find ways they want to change the world for the better. Rad Girls Can showcases some heroines who've taken on almost mythic status, like the Mongol warrior Khutulun, but many are modern-era girls readers can easily relate to.

Kate Schatz's concise, engaging stories are accompanied by Miriam Klein Stahl's arresting cut-paper portraits make each page feel fresh. Readers are invited to add their own "rad" story, and are offered solid tips on how to transform ideas into action.
