Title: She Takes a Stand
Author: Michael Elsohn Ross
I've read a number of collections like this one, stories of women who make a difference in their communities, often at great personal risk. This is one of the better ones I've read. Some of the names are familiar. Others are new but equally inspiring. These women in this book come from a variety of time periods and locations. They fount for different rights, defied different unfair laws and policies, showing that any problem you see is worth fighting. And you don't have to be "important" to do the fighting. This would make a solid addition to any teen collection.
