Le crayon magique de Malala by Malala Yousafzai,Kerascoët Summary

Au coeur du Pakistan, une toute jeune fille prénomée Malala rêve d'avoir un crayon magique qu'elle utiliserait pour... fermer la porte de sa chambre à clef et éviter que ses frères ne viennent l'embêter, arrêter le temps pour dormir une heure de plus tous les matins, effacer l'odeur des poubelles devant chez elle... Mais plus elle grandit, plus ses rêves évoluent. Car c'est avec un vrai stylo qu'on peut changer le monde : en apprenant à tous à lire et à écrire. "J'ai compris ce jour que si j'avais un crayon magique, je m'en servirais pour dessiner un nouveau monde, un monde de paix, sans guerre, pauvreté ou famine. Un monde où les garçons et les filles seraient égaux." Plutôt que rêver seule dans sa chambre, Malala raconte son histoire et devient porte-parole et militante du droit des femmes.

Moi, Malala by Malala Yousafzai,Patricia McCormick Summary

"Élevée par des parents éclairés dans un Pakistan en pleine transformation, Malala Yousafzai a toujours été encouragée à défendre ses opinions. Son père, en créant sa propre école et en s’opposant ouvertement aux talibans, lui a montré la voie. Il a instillé en elle la soif d’apprendre, le désir de résister au traitement des femmes dans son pays. Ce jour-là, le 9 octobre 2012, Malala rentre de l’école lorsque, soudain, le bus scolaire s’arrête. Deux hommes armés lui tirent dessus. Son crime ? Avoir osé prétendre aux mêmes droits que les garçons, et avoir dénoncé les talibans qui incendient les écoles et interdisent aux jeunes filles le droit à l’éducation. Pendant dix jours, Malala reste entre la vie et la mort. Mais malgré l’exil, les menaces, les mois de rééducation, Malala est, plus que jamais, résolue à lutter pour ses convictions. Voici son histoire. Et voici son combat. ".

She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton Summary

Chelsea Clinton introduces tiny feminists, mini activists and little kids who are ready to take on the world to thirteen inspirational women who never took no for an answer, and who always, inevitably and without fail, persisted. Throughout United States history, there have always been women who have spoken out for what's right, even when they have to fight to be heard. In this book, Chelsea Clinton celebrates thirteen American women who helped shape our country through their tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. They all certainly persisted. She Persisted is for everyone who has ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who has ever tried to reach for the stars but was told to sit down, and for everyone who has ever been made to feel unworthy or unimportant or small. With vivid, compelling art by Alexandra Boiger, this book shows readers that no matter what obstacles may be in their paths, they shouldn't give up on their dreams. Persistence is power. This book features: Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Virginia Apgar, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor—and one special cameo.

Harriet Tubman by Catherine Clinton Summary

The definitive biography of one of the most courageous women in American history "reveals Harriet Tubman to be even more remarkable than her legend" (Newsday). Celebrated for her exploits as a conductor on the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman has entered history as one of nineteenth-century America's most enduring and important figures. But just who was this remarkable woman? To John Brown, leader of the Harper's Ferry slave uprising, she was General Tubman. For the many slaves she led north to freedom, she was Moses. To the slaveholders who sought her capture, she was a thief and a trickster. To abolitionists, she was a prophet. Now, in a biography widely praised for its impeccable research and its compelling narrative, Harriet Tubman is revealed for the first time as a singular and complex character, a woman who defied simple categorization. "A thrilling reading experience. It expands outward from Tubman's individual story to give a sweeping, historical vision of slavery." --NPR's Fresh Air

Before They Could Vote by Sidonie A. Smith,Julia Watson,Sidonie Smith Summary

The life narratives in this collection are by ethnically diverse women of energy and ambition—some well known, some forgotten over generations—who confronted barriers of gender, class, race, and sexual difference as they pursued or adapted to adventurous new lives in a rapidly changing America. The engaging selections—from captivity narratives to letters, manifestos, criminal confessions, and childhood sketches—span a hundred years in which women increasingly asserted themselves publicly. Some rose to positions of prominence as writers, activists, and artists; some sought education or wrote to support themselves and their families; some transgressed social norms in search of new possibilities. Each woman’s story is strikingly individual, yet the brief narratives in this anthology collectively chart bold new visions of women’s agency.
