Girls Who Rocked The World: Heroines from Anne Frank to Natalie Portman

A fully updated, comprehensive collection of true, inspirational profiles of successful young women throughout history who made their mark on the world before age twenty.

Young women today crave strong, independent role models to look to for motivation. Now, fully updated after more than a decade, Girls Who Rocked the World offers a fun and inspiring collection of influential stories. A variety of achievements, interests, and ethnic backgrounds are represented, from Harriet Tubman and Coco Chanel to S.E. Hinton and Maya Lin—each with their own incredible story of how they created life-changing opportunities for themselves. Personal aspirations from today's young women are also interspersed throughout the book, as well as profiles of teenagers who are out there rocking the world right now—girls like Winter Vinecki, the creator of the non-profit organization Team Winter, and Jazmin Whitley, the youngest designer to show at L.A. Fashion Week.
