From Cleopatra to Amelia Earhart, from Malala Yousafzai to Michelle Obama and Emma Watson, learn about powerful and inspiring women through history in this incredible book!

Covering female world leaders from centuries ago through to modern-day heroes, What Would She Do? is the ultimate guide to empowered women. Portraits created by hand-picked contemporary illustrators and snappy, compelling text bring these women's achievements vividly to life, and relate their stories back to those of young girls today. These trailblazers not only accomplished great things, but overcame the same issues that girls all over the world have to face in modern society, such as inequality, gender stereotyping, body shaming, bullying and much more.
