History is so often taught through the lens of famous white men and misses out so many people – especially women, who’ve contributed great things to our world. This zine can help you find out about just a few of them, with beautiful illustrations and biographies of 20 different women from history from illustrator Julie Gough.
There’s political leaders, civil rights activists, musicians, philosophers, writers, trans-pioneers, cosmonauts, and scientists – from the early 1980’s to modern day.
Featuring: Ada Lovelace, Angela Davis, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Christabel Pankhurst, Coretta Scott King, Elizabeth Blackwell, Emmeline Pankhurst, Florence Nightingale, Funmilayo Ransome Kuti, Helen Sharman, Kathleen Hanna, Lili Elbe, Liliuokalani, Malala Yousafzai, Mary Seacole, Maya Angelou, Poly Styrene, Rosa Parks, Rosalind Franklin, Simone de Beauvoir, and Zora Neale Hurston.
