Twenty illustrated essays on Irish women, historical and contemporary, who have defied cultural norms around femininity and achieved great things.

Written by multi award-winning author and first Laureate na nÓg (Irish Children’s Laureate), Siobhán Parkinson.

Perfect for use in schools as well as for leisure reading, this collection celebrates the role of women in Ireland’s changing society.
