Graphic Novel Spotlight: No Girls Allowed

No Girls Allowed by Susan Hughes

No Girls Allowed tells the stories of seven historical women who rejected societal expectations of females, disguised themselves as men, and made things happen. They ruled nations, fought wars, and sought their freedom and better education. The art in this book is black and white line drawings and rather stylized, making at times a hard sell. Still, it's easily understood even without mind-blowing drawings and it's a great quick look at some important historical figures. This is well worth a look, especially for the reader who thinks graphic novels are all superheroes and weird fantasy.

You'll notice that the female characters have a circle on one cheek to indicate their gender
