“The words are all inspirational, and so are the stories. Better still, as examples for budding activists, along with the predictable recitations of jobs, honors, and successes, the overviews often acknowledge failures, cannily characterizing them as first steps or as means to some greater end. A chorus of voices for justice and change, diverse alike of identity and cause.” -Kirkus Reviews

“Having access to these women’s voices, to literally hear them saying their iconic and critical words creates a magical connection between readers and these women, and I’ve never seen (well, heard) anything else like it.” – Ciarra Chavarria, @girlsreadtheworld (See full review here.)
“I was so excited to read She Spoke because of the push buttons on the side, but when I got the book, it was neat that there were so many women I had never heard of before.” – Read the full review from 8-year-old Avery at Kids’ Book Buzz
