Summary
Murasaki Shikibu, who wrote the world's first novel. Ada Augusta Byron, who became the world's first computer programmer way back in 1843. Miranda Stuart, who disguised herself as a man for her entire life to become England's first female doctor. Angelina and Sarah Moore Grimke, two sisters who were among the first women to publicly speak out against slavery and to fight for women's rights in America. These are just a few of the remarkable women you'll read about in Girls Who Grew Up Great. It's full of the short biographies of girls who, as they grew up, dared to dream, conquered challenges, and made a better world for us all.
