Daring women

No Girls Allowed: Tales of Daring Women Dressed as Men for Love, Freedom and Adventure
by Susan Hughes
illustrated by Willow Dawson

Hatshepsut, Mu Lan, Alfhild, Esther Brandeau, James Barry, Ellen Craft, Sarah Rosetta Wakeman - these seven women changed their names, their appearances, and their identities and suddenly felt safer, smarter, and more ambitious. But they had to do it while living a lie. Thankfully, times have changed, but there are still oppressed women around the world.

Told in graphic novel format, No Girls Allowed educates in a modern, zippy way. It is suitable for audiences as young as five, or those who prefer comic books.
