SHE: A Celebration of Renegade Women by Harriet Hall

You are cordially invited to celebrate inspirational women... 

SHE is a love letter to all the women who have thrown out the rulebook and threatened the status quo. It's a toast to the brave, bold and brilliant women who make us proud to be ladies. 

 From fashion icon Coco Chanel to Queen Cleopatra, from literary legend Jane Austen to trailblazer Michelle Obama and from kick-ass activist Malala Yousafzai to the one-and-only Beyonce, SHE honours 100 truly renegade women, from history through to present day. 

 Gorgeously curated and expertly written by Stylist journalist Harriet Hall, and filled with stunning illustrations and stylish typography, SHE is a thing of beauty to be worshipped, just like the women that make up its contents. 

Wow, this hardback book is gorgeous! I love the size, and that it doesn't have a dust jacket. I even love the way the 100 renegade women are featured: a two-page spread with illustration on one side and awesome information on the other. It's so neat and crisp and to the point.

I've been reading quite a few books about women who aren't household mames, although most should be, and am continually fascinated with how powerful and strong women have been throughout history. Even though many didn't get recognition until recently, they pushed on and got things done. 

The bravery these women possessed is inspirational.

I also like the diversity in this book. Not only are there women featured of all colours and from all over the world, but also through the ages and different fields.

SHE: A Celebration of Renegade Women is much more than a reference book about kick-ass women, it's a celebration. An inspiration to encourage the rest of us to keep creating, fixing, inventing--just do what feels right for you and make a difference in a world that often tries to stop us.

This is another keeper, and it's going right next to all the other books in my growing collection.
